Man City ace Balotelli: It's tough being genius like me!

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has declared himself a "genius".

The City striker has given flashes of his amazing ability during a controversial two year stay at City's Etihad stadium.

He said: "Me? Yes I think I'm a genius. I don't think I'm a rebel. I have my life, my world, I behave how I like, without stepping on anyone's toes.

"It's said geniuses are misunderstood. So perhaps genius is so different that people don't understand it.

"The talent God has given me is beautiful, magnificent, but it's hard to hold on to it.

"That's because you are always confronted by other people who are quick to judge you. It's not easy."
