Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio feels Italy teammate Mario Balotelli needs to get off Twitter.

The AC Milan striker was again embroiled in controversy over the weekend after blasting fans on Twitter following his dismissal for Italy against the Czech Republic.

"He is too nice sometimes," said Marchisio, who has been on Twitter for much longer.

"Since he joined Twitter, he follows everything. It's good that he does, but he has to learn how to answer too.

"He did well to say he cares about the Nazionale and it is also important that he apologised."
