Inter Milan whizkid Mario Balotelli is delighted with his progress this season.

"I am happy at Inter because this is my dream team, I couldn't wish for anything more." he confessed. "I am not under pressure because playing football is all I want to do. It is a dream and always will be."

Super Mario may leave the Nerazzurri on loan at the end of this season in order to get some first-team experience, although he would prefer to stay in Milan.

"I don't know if I will go on loan or stay here, it is up to the Board. I would like to stay here though, because I feel good at Inter," he said. "Everybody is trying to help me, but Marco Materazzi does it the most - when he sees I am doing something wrong he has a word with me."

Balotelli added: "I have decided to play for Italy because I don't feel Ghanaian.

"I grew up here, I am Italian. I don't even know what Africa looks like, I have never been there."
