Inter Milan's controversial striker Mario Balotelli says he will become "the greatest player in the world"! Despite his antics on Wednesday night and clashes with fans and teammates, Balotelli remained full of himself yesterday.

"I am ready to become the greatest player in the world," SuperMario told Sky Italia television.

"I am relaxed and nothing has changed. Since childhood I have had this dream and I have no intention of messing it up.

"I spend 80 per cent of my life under the spotlight, so it's only normal I don't laugh all the time.

"If the people saw the other 20 per cent, they'd realise I am a fun person."
