Paris St Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has praised the talents of Manchester City hit-man Mario Balotelli.
And it is not the first time that the former Chelsea manager has heaped praise on the controversial Italy international.
The 52-year-old has gone public before over his belief in the enigmatic young striker and has done so again, this time claiming that the 21-year-old attacker is a better player than AC Milan's Antonio Cassano.
Balotelli has attracted attention both on and off the pitch this season, most notably when the flamboyant forward celebrated the first of his two goals in the 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United earlier in the season by lifting his shirt to reveal a vest that said 'Why always me?'
Being the Premier League's most talked about player, Balotelli cannot help drawing attention to himself but Ancelotti admits being one of his biggest fans.
And when asked whether he would like to work with players like Balotelli and Cassano, Ancelotti told Italian magazine Max: "I would train them willingly.
"Balotelli is a great player, more so than Cassano. You don't know how far he (Balotelli) can go. He can do everything on the pitch."
