Inter Milan's Balotelli confident staying grounded

Inter Milan superkid Mario Balotelli is confident he will stay grounded, despite the hype swirling around him.

The 17 year-old said: "I know there are true friends and people who are only worried about me when I am doing well. The popularity is beautiful but it wouldn't mean a lot without my family and friends."

Asked about the influence of the coaches at Inter, Balotelli added: "The advice from Roberto Mancini and Sinisa Mihajlovic is fundamental to grow, but I try to learn something from the players and all the attackers playing at Inter."
