Mario Balotelli vows to stop giving interviews after negative portrayal

Mario Balotelli has vowed to not give anymore interviews after the way in which French media distorted a recent sit down with the Nice forward.

In a wide-ranging talk with French radio station RMC that covered a number of important topics including racism and his return to the Italian national team, it was Balotelli's perceived negative comments about PSG striker Edinson Cavani that made national headlines.

And Balotelli took to Instagram on Thursday to slam the media's portrayal of his interview.

.. just saying. Very sad that what interest the world are just the gossip and the stupid news... ������������ I spoke about racism in the society, I spoke about how much I love Ghana and Italy.. why would you twist that to all one stupid thing? Why? #godisbig

"I spoke about amazing young players, I spoke about racism, I spoke about Italy, all those newspaper could get was about the Cavani story... you just ridiculous seriously..." Balotelli wrote.

"Seriously don't ask me for interviews again... no one. Balotelli isn't a game, [he] is a person with [an] opinion so get your owns [sic] to judge on it.

"Really isn't the fact of another stupid lie story coming out that bothers me but the fact that I spoke about society real problem and all that they could get was that?

"That's why the society and new generation will grow weaker and weaker."
