Inter Milan coach Mancini keen to play down Balotelli hype

Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini is eager to tone down the hype surrounding 17 year-old striker Mario Balotelli.

He said: "At times young players can be built up too quickly and catapulted into another type of reality. It can be dangerous. Balotelli has enormous quality and incredible strength for someone his age. He'll have a great future, but only if he manages to keep his head on his shoulders."
