Mario Balotelli Eager To Impress With Italy & Manchester City

Italy ace Mario Balotelli promises good times for Man City and his other blues side.
Mario Balotelli hopes to enjoy a gradual progression and transform his football landscape with Manchester City and Italy.

The striker has gone through a process of reformation after leaving Inter for the Premier League. He was also afforded a chance with la Nazionale by Cesare Prandelli.

And Balotelli, who is recovering from a knee operation, is eager to impress when he returns.

"It's nice to know that Prandelli relies on me," he told Il Corriere dello Sport.

"I will do everything possible to be ready and to recover as soon as I can.

"For me the national team is one of the most important things, it has always been.

"I want to be a protagonist in Euro 2012 and then at World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

"First though I must do well with City as this is an adventure that I am counting on."
