Brazilian soccer star, Kerlon was once a teammate of controversial Italian striker, Mario Balotelli at Inter Milan.
Kerlon who joined Inter Milan from Cruzeiro in 2008 but spent the most part of his contract out on loan and never made an appearance Inter. He at least recalls some crazy moments while he was at Inter and has stories to tell about his former teammate, Balotelli.
Speaking to ESPN Brazil, Kerlon recalled how Balotelli would arrive the training ground before anyone else and then urinate on the boots of his teammates prior to their arrival. Mario didn’t even spare senior team mates such as Maicon.
“Balotelli is a very nice guy and an extraordinary person, but he did some unbelievable things off the pitch.
“He had a habit of arriving at training before anyone else and peeing on all the players’ boots … it was very funny.
“I’ve never seen a kid of 18 years do it, and not feel sorry for any of it, even to Julio Cesar and Maicon,” he recounted.
Kerlon who is known for his head dribbles which are dubbed “seal dribbles” also confirmed he never tried those stunning dribbles at Inter as his team mates had huge physical advantage over him.
“I did a preseason with Jose Mourinho at Inter, but I never tried the dribble.
“The guys were very tall and strong, it’s complicated.
“If Materazzi hit me, I would fly away,” he joked.
