Trapattoni would love to coach Man City firebrand Balotelli

Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni is well aware of the qualities of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Trapattoni was asked if he would like to work with firebrand Balotelli.

The former Juventus coach said: "I always say that I coach every player that I am provided. Sure, there are some which need a lot of patience, he could take more than others may.

"Balotelli, however, has great technical qualities, and for quality players every coach should always try to train them."
