Inter Milan management are excited by the progress of superkid Mario Balotelli.

Ghana-born Balotelli, 16, revealed he's already working closely with the Inter first team: "Roberto Mancini treats me very well. He's always giving me advice, especially about the areas where I can improve my game.

"I also worked closely with Adriano, although now he's left for Brazil. But everyone in the senior squad treat me well."
