Inter Milan bad-boy Icardi feels Balotelli kinship

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi says he's a big fan of AC Milan's Mario Balotelli.

Icardi admits he feels a kinship with Milan's own troubled star Balotelli.

"I honestly don't know him, but from what I hear he's a good guy. He doesn't care what people think or say about him. In that sense he is just like me, absolutely identical.

"What do I not like about Balotelli? Perhaps at times he exaggerates with his behaviour. Not with referees, as everyone complains a bit to them. I remember his row with Roberto Mancini at Manchester City, as they nearly beat each other up on the field."
