Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has been criticised over his management of Mario Balotelli - by the Italian government! Italy's Minister of Defense, Ignazio La Russa, a famous Inter fan, says Mourinho is getting his handling of Balotelli all wrong.

La Russa stated: "Mourinho should show love for Mario Balotelli, he must not only act like a stern father with an undisciplined son.

"If the Portuguese coach is only showing severity towards Mario, it means that something is going wrong. Mario is after all a boy of just 19 years of age and also is already a champion."
