Inter Milan legend Marco Materazzi has revealed what he did when he caught Mario Balotelli wearing AC Milan socks to training one day.

The Manchester City striker is a huge Milan fan, but made his name at Inter.

“Mario wore Milan socks to training once at the Pinetina ground. At that point, I cut them up, as those colours look terrible on him,” smiled Matrix.

“He understood the lesson. In any case, Balo is truly a good kid and I hope he can win at Euro 2012. It’s tough to find players so young who have already won so much.”
