thumbnail Hello,

The Rossoneri No.10 has some kind advice for the Nerazzurri hitman...

Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf believes Inter striker Mario Balotelli needs to change his attitude if he is to command respect from colleagues and fans following the recent antics with Juventus.

The Inter striker has come under heavy criticism for the way he provokes the opposition on the pitch. Balotelli has recently been making the headlines after receiving abuse from the Juventus crowd last week. Seedorf feels the striker makes his own enemies, insisting that there was nothing racial about the Juve taunts towards the Italian.

"Balotelli needs to start understanding that he cannot behave in certain ways because he will always attract the wrong attention wherever he goes," Seedorf told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"The fans? It was right to punish Juventus as I think clubs can do more to educate fans. I don't think there was any racism with Balotelli. People have to stop saying it was.

"Sometimes people provoke and cause a reaction. Both actions are unjustifiable. What Balottelli endured is the same thing Kaka and [Gennaro] Gattuso put up with."
