Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has said he will curb his wild behaviour – if he takes tips from recently retired Brazilian star Ronaldo. The young Italian reckons the overeating, transvestite prostitute hiring two-time World Cup winner would be a calming influence.
Balotelli told Italian TV: “If you introduce me to Ronaldo, I swear I’ll behave until I give up playing football. I have never met him, but when you see the idol of a lifetime it can change you. It can change your way of being.
“I don’t know how I can explain it. There are many great players, but Ronaldo was the greatest and so one word from him is worth more than a thousand of all the others.”
And somewhere at Eastlands, Garry Cook prices up a coaching contract for Ronaldo!
