Man City ace Yaya: Balotelli 'interesting' teammate

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure insists he was close to Mario Balotelli when he was in England.

Balotelli left City almost 12 months ago for AC Milan.

Toure recalled: "Mario Balotelli used to wind me up a lot, he would tease me. It was very interesting to be with him.

"He is very young, He reacts instantly. But he is a nice guy, who is very pleasant. Sometimes, though, when I wanted him to do something, he would just say, 'No!'"
