Inter Milan striker Balotelli: It was love-hate with Mourinho

Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli has described his relationship with former coach Jose Mourinho as "love-hate".

Balotelli often clashed with his Coach and was frozen out on numerous occasions for these spats.

"I had a love-hate relationship with Mourinho," he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

"So much was said about this and when you get two people with a similarly strong personality, they tend to clash.

"There were some arguments, but nothing so serious, these are things that happen. When I watch myself on television sometimes I don't even recognise it as me. I'm a good person with healthy principles, but I am also young and like to have fun.

"What if Mourinho called me to Real Madrid? No, I prefer the sun in Naples..."
