Balotelli has the potential to be a very good footballer and he has the attitude that makes him stand out from the crowd etc.
But come on, he's not in the same league as Rooney, Christiano Ronaldo, Xavi and a few others.
He's not even Manchester City's best player with that accolade belonging to either David Silva or Sergio Arguero.
However, none of them are as good as Lionel Messi who is a truly great footballer who has a talent that is only seen once or twice in a lifetime.
If he stays clear of serious injury etc he has the potential to challenge Pele as the greatest footballer there has ever been.
