Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has slammed AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli. Ancelotti says Balotelli cannot be relied upon for the World Cup.

He said: "Italy's real problem is in attack, where they do not have any top players. We are waiting for Balotelli, but Balotelli is simply not consistent.

"He is a great talent, but he can't be relied upon and can leave you down to 10 men at any moment."
