I am thrilled to be a Ghanaian – Balotelli
OGC Nice forward, Mario Bawuah Balotelli has insisted that he is proud to be a Ghanaian and for that matter an African.
The 27-year-old was born to two Ghanaian immigrants in Italy and was adopted by Italian parents.
The 2010 UEFA Champions League winner had the chance to play for either for Ghana or the Azzurri of Italy, but he chose the European nation over the Africans.
And despite snubbing Ghana, the controversial forward has routed for the Black Stars in major football tournaments, expressing his affection for the nation.
In his latest Instagram post, the former AC Milan striker has reaffirmed how proud he is to be from Africa.
