Giggs: In England all but the City fans hate Mario Balotelli

Since arriving in England, Mario Balotelli has received plenty of attention for his actions both on and off the pitch. Ryan Giggs made a few comments regarding the 21-year-old, speaking at the 2011 Golden Foot Award which he won.

“He is very good, but also a little strange,” Giggs said at the event.

“In England all but the City fans hate him. But trust me, he is very talented.”

The veteran also spoke about revenge on Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona side if we reach a point in the Champions League where we get drawn against them. Giggs was part of the squad that lost in the final, last season.

“Hopefully. We want to win the trophy,” he said when asked if United can win the Champions League for a fourth time.

“If we face Barcelona it would be the opportunity to have our revenge.”
