The OGC Nice striker Mario Balotelli, who has scored six goals in his six appearances for the League 1 side club since he joined the club this summer, has recently admitted that he could be named the best footballer in the world.
The 26-year-old Italian forward believes that the Portugal international and the Argentine ace, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi respectively are, at this moment the best and nobody's like them, it’s Impossible, but also admitted that if he had a good year, without injury than its not impossible for him to defeat the three times and five times Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi respectively to win the Ballon d'Or.
As in an interview with Chinese publication Xinhua, Mario said,
"Ronaldo and Messi are in this moment the best and nobody's like them. Impossible,"
"But if I had a good year, without injury, I think it's not impossible to win the Ballon d'Or.”
"Even if one day I won the Ballon d'Or, I think Ronaldo and Messi are the best because they won like four or five times."
And lastly Mario admitted that he is confident he can keep scoring, just as long as he stays healthy.
"Last season I didn't play a lot, so I couldn't really score," "And I was injured, I've been out for a long time. So when I was feeling good, I played and I kept scoring.”
"I had just some injury in the past which wasn't a big deal. The problem was they keep coming. So when I feel good, I score." Balotelli concluded.
