Baloâ€™s 14 Premier League games this season have bought him just one goal and the 22-year-old was last week dubbed a â€śrotten appleâ€ť by AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi.
And now Italyâ€™s coach Cesare Prandelli has insisted: â€śThere comes a point when Mario has to change of his own accord.
â€śHe needs to take his responsibilities seriously and get people talking about what he does on the pitch.
â€śI advise him to listen to his manager. It was Mancini who gave him his debut for Inter and who took him to Manchester.
â€śWho better than him to give Mario advice?
â€śBerlusconi may have called him a rotten apple but he always behaves well on national duty.
â€śWe coaches have the duty to bring out the best in a talented player like Mario. But he should stop trying to be a super-hero off the field.â€ť
