Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko admits teammate Mario Balotelli loves courting publicity.

Balotelli's future at City is in doubt.

Dzeko said: "Everyone knows what Balotelli is like. He enjoys being the centre of attention, that's just who he is.

"When it comes to the team, he can sometimes be a bit over the top in some areas, but generally I find him a really a positive guy.

"However, I don't think that he is making the most of his talent."
