Man City's Balotelli: There are very few people with my talent!

Mario Balotelli believes he is sometimes unfairly judged simply because he has more talent than most other players.

The 21-year old Manchester City and Italy striker is more than capable of creating headlines for exploits - both positive and negative - on the pitch but is often criticised for incidences he becomes involved in whilst away from football.

Balotelli, who is preparing for the upcoming Euro2012 tournament, has suggested that the negativity directed towards him only comes from people who cannot understand what it is like to be blessed with what he describes as God-given talent.

"I'm different," Balotelli told France Football. "If you find another guy like me, I'll buy you dinner.

"It's because there are few people with this talent who can judge what I do. The gift God has given me is beautiful, magnificent, but it's difficult to handle because you're always confronted by other people who are ready to judge you.

"It's not easy, but it's not a drama. Those who don't understand me don't interest me."
