Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has blasted the attitude of young striker Mario Balotelli.

Mourinho says he dropped Balotelli for yesterday's victory over Napoli because of the youngster's poor application in training.

He explained: "If you train at 50 per cent, you cannot be one of the best in the world, unfortunately, he has not even trained at 25 per cent. I am saying this about a young boy of 17 or 18 years who trains with people like Figo, Cordoba, Zanetti, who he should use as an example.

"I cannot accept that someone who has not yet done anything, has not arrived, is still a talent and promising, can work less than them."
