Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has warned AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli he needs an attitude adjustment to make it big.

Prandelli has claimed that the young forward needs to learn not to react to provocation.

"Balotelli will always be provoked," he told Rai Sport. "He has to learn to shut up and not react.

"A large part of the game is staying calm, and in this respect Mario can definitely improve.

"In the future he will be provoked more and more and he needs to learn to manage himself."
