Super Mario does drive a camouflage Bentley and is known for his often chaotic love life, but insists that's only to be expected of a 22-year-old.

He said: "A love of women I think is normal. Cars? I like fast cars and I don't see the problem if I like fast cars.

"Some things have happened in my life, some stuff unfortunately happened and they went on the newspapers straight away.

"But I don't see anything that would make people think that I'm bad or I'm crazy. I'm a normal guy."

The Palermo-born forward was never far away from the headlines during his time at manchester City for his antics both on and off the pitch.

Balotelli added: "The stuff that they said in the newspapers that I did in England in the past, few of those are real. The others are really just the imagination of the journalists.

"But when you create an icon of a person in that kind of way, after everyone thinks you are like this and if you lie about it, everyone just thinks that it is all true. So maybe that's why they think I'm crazy and do crazy things?"
