Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli thinks he is a stronger player than Zlatan Ibrahimovic, claims AC Milan star's agent

Manchester City forward Mario Balotelli thinks he is a stronger player than AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to the Swede’s agent.

Despite Mino Raiola’s claim, his client apparently believes Balotelli is stronger than he was at the same age.

Speaking to GQ magazine, Raiola also said the Sweden international pleaded to find him a move away from Barcelona.

"Ibrahimovic asked me to get him out of Barcelona because he was ashamed to stay there," Raiola said.

"He advised me about Mario Balotelli too, telling me that he is stronger than Ibrahimovic was at his age.

"The problem is that Mario thinks he is stronger than Ibrahimovic already."
