Because less players equal more space to pass and move


Former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has dismissed suggestions that he is a bad boy by joking that he wants to be more bad. The striker has often stated that he misses English football fans.

Even during his time at City, Balotelli stated on several occasions that he did not like several aspects of English football like the weather, driving style, and food. However, if there was one aspect of English football that he misses a lot, then it has to be the fans. Balotelli sealed a £ 18 million move to AC Milan a few transfer windows ago.

He has since been one of the best strikers in Italy, although his performances have been marginalised by the poor results of AC Milan. They have failed to get into the top four this campaign and have been close to the bottom of the table for most of the season. This led to the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri, who was eventually replaced by former Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf.

Balotelli has been one of the enigmatic figures of football and it has even earned the praise of football legend Diego Maradona, who has stated that he would like to work with the 24-year-old at some point in his career.
Maradona had been linked with several managerial jobs in Italy.

"Me, a bad boy? I would like to be more bad. I miss England's fans, while I do not miss the food, or the weather, or the manner of driving a car. But fans of City, yes I miss them. But the AC Milan fans are fantastic too. Most of my memories about Manchester are happy because I enjoyed it there. It was not a shock for me to move to England and there is not a big difference between the two clubs," said Balotelli.
