Inter Milan boss Mourinho has dig at Balotelli brain cells!

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho insists there's no great rift with Mario Balotelli.

Mou added some spice during Friday's presentation of McDonald Mariga when he praised the Kenyan for having "millions of neurons and brain cells, so he works hard in training every day. There are some at Inter who have only one."

Although the tactician never mentioned Balotelli by name, the reference was fairly clear.

"I was contributing to education with that comment," insisted the Special One. "Afterwards at the training camp the parents thanked me, as their children asked what a neuron was.

"My concern is not to get along with Mario, what I'm interested in is his performance and to be honest I've liked him recently.

"A player has to make sacrifices, understand his team is going through a difficult time and at that moment leave aside everything else. He is in the squad and won't be in the stands, so for me this controversy doesn't exist.

"Mario should worry when I no longer talk about him. That's the moment when it's all over!"
