Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli insists he's never heard of Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere.

Balotelli finished ahead of Arsenal midfielder Wilshere for the Turin sports newspaper's Golden Boy award, and reckons he was a deserving winner.

He said: "I don't know who Wilshere is but the next time I play against Arsenal I will keep a close eye on him.

"Perhaps I can show him (Wilshere) the Golden Boy trophy and remind him that I won it!"
