Thiago Motta – Balotelli must be on his best behaviour at Euro 2012
Thiago Motta has urged his Italy team-mate Mario Balotteli to be on his best behaviour at Euro 2012.
The Brazilian-born defender, who had played alongside Balotelli at Inter Milan, told reporters at a press conference: ''Balotelli has not changed anything from his time at Inter, he always makes me angry.
''He must realise that wearing the shirt of the national team is a big responsibility.
''He must be aware that with his characteristics, he can help us reach the next level in terms of quality, helping his team-mates on the field.
''Another key member of the team is Andrea Pirlo, who plays in a simple but effective way. We have to help him.''
