Balotelli credits sizzling form to new found love
Mario Balotelli has had a blistering start to his AC Milan career. The 22-year-old forward has already scored 7 goals in his 6 Serie A games for the Rossoneri and has helped in their rise up the table. He has also been in good form for the National side, scoring a brace in the qualifier against Malta and a goal in their friendly against Brazil. Balotelli had become an isolated figure at Manchester City where he had become embroiled in on and off the field controversies and run-ins with fellow players and City manager Roberto Mancini. This led to his £19 million move to Milan in January.
And the Italian has attributed his recent success to his new girlfriend Fanny Nguesha. Balotelli met Nguesha late last year and the two have been going out ever since. The happiness in his love life seems to have directly resulted in an increase in productivity on the pitch.
“Am I in love? Yes,” Balotelli said. “She is determined, confident and generous. In a short space of time she found herself in sync with me.
“I could spend my whole life with someone like this. Thanks to Fanny I have rediscovered the balance that I need in my work”, added Balotelli.
He continued: “She puts our relationship first and foremost, so there are no distractions or rows before games. It’s not easy to be with me, because I almost have to give up on a private life, as I am constantly exposed to the public.”
Mario had earlier split from his former girlfriend Raffaella Fico with whom he had a daughter named Pia.
