Mario Balotelli hits out at racists disrupting Italy World Cup camp

MARIO BALOTELLI has hit out at the racists disrupting Italy's World Cup preparations - and the lack of meaningful action against them.


Balotelli disgusted by abuse

Balotelli was racially abused by fans at a national team training camp last week and claims too many people are just paying lip service to the problem.

The AC Milan star said: "These stupid people, they get angry with me, they say horrible things, but I haven't done anything different from other people.

"I know people are fighting this thing. But every time I have talked about this subject people talk about it for three or four days but then everything goes back to normal.

"If I was white maybe some people would still find me irritating or annoying but it wouldn't be the same. Absolutely not. Jealousy is a horrible thing.

"But when it's towards people who are different from the majority, and who also have more than you, it becomes anger, it becomes rage, and that's the overt racism."
