I Have To Improve My Character - Inter's Balotelli

Following the 1-1 draw against Juventus, in which he scored the opening goal, Inter starlet Mario Balotelli talked about the team's performance and his tendency to give into provocation...

Tonight Inter drew 1-1 away to Juventus, thereby maintaining their ten-point lead on top of the table, but they could have increased it as they conceded the equaliser just minutes before the end of the match.

The opening goal was scored by Mario Balotelli, who gave an interview to Gasport after the game.

"We played well, but we made a mistake at the end, we knew they were strong on dead-ball situations," he said, "but if we play like this, with this determination, with this desire, the Scudetto is ours."

Near the end of the match the 18-year-old was replaced by coach Jose Mourinho because he felt the teenager was getting too nervous.

"My character is like that," the striker said, "if they provoke me I don't always react, maybe I complain, my opponents know it's a weak aspect of my character and provoke me, I know I have to improve from that point of view.

"My team mates want to help me, and when one player crosses the line they always try to bring him back in."
