Back in August, Mario Balotelli told Sky Sports Italia, "I'm not happy in Manchester, I don't like the city." Then his friends burned down his bathroom, he urinated at a local school and now he loves it there!
Says Mario's agent, Mino Raiola (via Football Italia):
"Mario has no intention of leaving City. He has started to understand certain systems on how to get along there.
"Strangely for him, he is admitting that Manchester isn't as bad as he thought or said. Is Milan a better city? It depends on your point of view, but right now Manchester is better for him."
Those systems Mario now understands: If you park your Maserati in the designated areas you won't have to pay fines everyday, the stray cats are nice and if you let the local media make up legendary tales about you, everyone will adore you forever.
