Inter president Moratti: Man City's Balotelli should be left alone

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has jumped to the defence of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Moratti believes Italy international Balotelli should be accepted the way he is.

"I am always ready to forgive everything," Moratti said to Italian newspaper Il Giorno.

"I have an idea of what he (Balotelli) is like because I know Mario since he was a boy. He has a wonderful family, who adore him and protect him and he repays that affection.

"But there is something in him that makes him distrustful of everyone, even those that appreciate him, as is the case of (Italy coach Cesare) Prandelli, who called him up to the national team."
