Balotelli is the Ghanian born player right? 

No. He was born in Italy.

A lil more articulation here
Quote
(CNN) -- Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli has stood by the remarks he made following Wednesday's 1-0 Serie A victory at Chievo.

The teenager scored the only goal for Jose Mourinho's champions, but reacted angrily to home fans who jeered him when he was substituted with two minutes of the match remaining.

In a post-match interview Balotelli said: "Every time I come to play in Verona, the city disgusts me even more," a remark which saw him fined $10,000 by the Italian league authorities.

However, on Thursday, Balotelli issued a statement on his official Web site, saying: "I will not apologize to those who insulted me.

"But I do apologize to those who were innocent and whom I offended through my expressions, which were conditioned by the boos I received during the game.
I am tired of always hearing racist chants when I'm on the pitch. It doesn't happen just at Verona.
--Mario Balotelli

"I should have made it clear that the fans in Verona and around Italy who boo me disgust me. Instead of enjoying a good sports game, they prefer to insult me.

"I am tired of always hearing racist chants when I'm on the pitch. It doesn't happen just at Verona. I was ashamed to hear my own Inter fans booing Chievo's Luciano. It's a disgrace which must end."

Balotelli added: "I am not angry with Verona. I like the city a lot, so much so that I went to see Juliet's house with a friend."


Steups.
As me and a brethrin was talking dis week....de mamaguy excuse according to him..."dey doh mean it to be racial..buh is de quickest taunt dey could think of."

"I won't ask to be excused by those that insulted me, but only for the part of the public that didn't have anything to do with it and that I offended expressing myself poorly," Balotelli said, adding that he lost his calm because of the "boos."

"I'm tired of hearing slogans and racist boos even when I behave well on the field," Balotelli wrote. "And it doesn't happen only to me.

"In Verona I was also ashamed by my own fans when I heard them boo Chievo's Luciano," Balotelli added, referring to the Brazilian midfielder. "It really upset me. It's shameful and it must stop."

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

the sad thing is that by taking it on like this, Balotelli will encourage more and more fools to bait him with racist insults. He is a player I like, he have a real unpleasant attitude, but i can't say i dont understand nuh..

i long to see the day when the player, followed by the whole team and coaching staff walk off the pitch in unity and forfeit a game to make a statement..

somebody hadda make a stand.

That is the best thing I think.

Eto'o was going to walk off vs Zaragoza but other players and Rijkaard restrain him and make him stay. Lookin back I was disappointed in Barca for that.

Ghana boss stood up by Balotelli

Ghana manager Miroslav Rajevac appears to have failed in his bid to persuade teenage Inter striker Mario Balotelli to join the Black Stars squad for the World Cup finals this summer.

Rajevac had reiterated earlier this week his plans to have the Italy Under-21 ace at his disposal for the showpiece event in South Africa and was hoping that Ghana international midfielder Sulley Muntari would mediate things with his Nerazzurri team-mate.

Ghana end Balotelli pursuit

Ghana boss Milovan Rajevac has launched a scathing attack on Mario Balotelli. ďHe wonít play for me or for Italy.Ē

The African nation have been courting the Inter striker for the last 18 months in the hope of fielding him at the World Cup.

Although Balotelli is a regular for the Italian national side at Under-21 level, his biological parents are Ghanaian which would make him eligible for selection.

Balo: 'I'm right, I won't apologise'     

Mario Balotelli called up live television to explain why ďI am right and will not apologiseĒ to Jose Mourinho.

The striker has been dropped from the last five games and is also out of the squad for Interís Champions League quarter-final against CSKA Moscow.

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni was interviewed on ĎChiambretti Nightí and invited the teenager not to waste his talent.

One of Ghana's top strikers goes down with a serious knee injury:

Agogo ruled out of World Cup

Will they try again to poach Balotelli?

Dem REALLY overdoing it. I dunno if any coach may be willing to take the chance on him..but.....i'd suggest if they hesitant...that they take on loan and if he acts up send him back.

really really late news guys.. Balotelli future with inter is well secured even with the racism headed his way.

I genuinely believe that Jose, Motta, Wesley, Lucio, Eto and Millito will leave sooner than Mario will.
