Mario Balotelli has asked that the French media stay away from him and not ask for anymore interviews, following a recent sit-down.
The Italian striker, who joined Ligue 1 side OGC Nice from Liverpool last year, is doing well to lose the reputation he has worked hard to gain over the years, but perhaps felt that he was pushed backwards again when his words were made to work against him after an interview with French source RMC Sport.
Balotelli spoke on a wide range of subjects during the interview - including racism, his transition to French football and young players - but briefly mentioned that Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani's first touch wasn't the best.
The media decided to focus on the Cavani bit, rather than the other more important quotes, leaving the 24-year-old quite irked.
“I spoke about amazing young players, I spoke about racism, I spoke about Italy, all those newspaper could get was about the Cavani story," he posted on Instagram. "You just ridiculous seriously.
“Cavani is amazing player and I respect him as the top scorer but in France the touch of the ball of a phenomenon I only give it to Di Maria and Falcao so?
“Seriously don’t ask me for interviews again - no one. Balotelli isn’t a game is a person with opinion so get your owns 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.”
