Casiraghi Praises Balotelli Behaviour

After a season in the spotlight for his numerous displays of petulance, it seems Mario Balotelli is finally getting his bad temper under control, as he goes about his duty with the Italy Under-21 side.

Following an incident in Rome yesterday in which Balotelli came under-fire from some local youths, Pierluigi Casiraghi had some words of praise for the Inter teenager in a press conference for the FIGC.

“The boy has conducted himself with the utmost professionalism, both in training and following yesterday’s incident of provocation,” said the coach.

In the wake of the incident, in which Balotelli was abused whilst out for an afternoon stroll on Ponte Milvio with Sebastian Giovinco and Domenico Criscito, it appears he refused to make any charges against the perpetrators when questioned by police.
