Ex Italy International, Keisuke Honda has come out to say that Mario Balotelli did nothing to improve his football when he was thriving as a youngster. He recently revealed that the Italian was a very big talent when he first broke through, but he never developed his skills.
According to him, he did his best to change Mario’s daily routine, while urging him that a change is needed for him to be the best in the world, but the forward never took him seriously.
He added that Balotelli was even very bored of gyming at some point and even arrived late at several sessions.
His words, “A huge talent, yet he did nothing to improve. I wanted to change his daily routine: ‘Mario, trust me. If you want to become the best you have to train hard.”
“He looked at me with a straight face and the next day he showed up at the gym 40 minutes before the session. Also the following day. By the third, he was already bored. That’s Mario.”
