London, Jan 26(ANI): Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has told outspoken Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli to talk less and concentrate on his football.

Balotelli has been at the centre of a number of controversies since joining City from Inter Milan in 2010, and recently made headlines by launching an incredible tirade targeting Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.

“He’s a good player, but he must talk less and think about playing more,” the Sun quoted Ronaldo, as saying.

“In the Premier League, if he knows how to listen and wants to learn, he could become a great player.”

“I hope he achieves that. However, today he puts many other things ahead of his career and this is not good,” he added.

Balotelli had earlier said: “He’s (Rooney) good, but he is not the best in Manchester.”

The 20-year-old even says that United fans would love to see him at Old Trafford.

“They stop me in the street and tell me, ‘Mario, come to United’. Honestly,” Balotelli had said.

“But I’m dreaming of beating United, because I know how much this means to our fans, they are splendid with me. I had such goosebumps when they sang my name after my hat-trick in the 4-0 win against Aston Villa,” he added. (ANI)
