Man City ace Balotelli: Mourinho rates me highly

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli says there's no problem between himself and Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

There were clashes with Mourinho at Inter Milan, most notably after SuperMario threw his shirt to the ground after the Champions League semi-final with Barcelona.

"Mourinho and Roberto Mancini are top managers, but as people everyone has their own opinion. It's true Mourinho called me before I joined City.

"Did he want me at Real Madrid? Ask him. Once he told me I was so good that he only needed me on the field for 20 minutes...

"I would not do three things if I had my time over. I wouldn't throw the Inter shirt to the ground, I would never again bite back at the fans, nor would I spend time with silly girls who just want to use me for publicity. I prefer to be alone than with such brainless people. "
