Mario Balotelli laments referees' treatment

Mario Balotelli claims that referees in Italy treat him more severely than they do other players.

AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli believes that referees in Italy are stricter with him than with other players in Serie A.

The Italian was booked for dissent in the Rossoneri's 4-2 home win against Catania in Serie A on Sunday in what was his return game following a two-match ban.

"It is not normal that I have to take so many kicks and yet they don't whistle for anything and then, when I just say one word, they ban me," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"As a result, I cannot play. I say half a word and they book me, while others can do what they want."

Balotelli joined Milan from Manchester City in January.
