Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he is a big fan of Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
There are concerns over the offensive and sometimes racist chants aimed at Nerazzurri striker Balotelli by the Juventus fans.
Ancelotti said told reporters that it is a sad story, but not racism. Ancelotti added that ut is stupidity and ignorance, and it is the same people who used to call him a pig back when he was in charge of Juventus.
He added that Balotelli helps contribute to the tension by behaving in a less than charming manner and that does not justify those who insult him and but said that he does not think that it is caused by the colour of the player’s skin.
Ancelotti also said that he really likes Balotelli eventhough he is not sure how difficult the player is to deal with and whether Mourinho is forced to punish him like that.
Ancelotti then said that he hopes that the player will not waste his talent.
