London, Mar.22 (ANI): Manchester City bad boy Mario Balotelli has admitted that he needs help with his form and poor behavior.

The Italian striker has been trouble since he arrived at Eastlands in a 24-million-pound move from Inter Milan last summer.

City boss Roberto Mancini was furious with him last Thursday when he was red-carded for his outrageous chest-high lunge at Dinamo Kiev’s Goran Popov as City crashed out the Europa League.

Now, according to The Sun, the 20-year-old striker has confided in Italian national boss Cesare Prandelli about his troubled time at Eastlands.

Prandelli said: “I spoke to Balotelli. He realised that he had made a stupid mistake. He told me ‘I need help, I always spoil everything’.”

Prandelli has axed Balotelli from the national squad for their match against Slovenia in a Euro 2012 qualifier on Friday. (ANI)
