A headline in this morning's La Gazzetta dello Sport seemed to anger the 23-year-old, who has in the past been accused of having ties with the 'Camorra' - the Neapolitan Mafia.
The headline read: 'Balotelli is ill, but will be there in Naples as a symbol against the Camorra'.
Balotelli later posted on Twitter: "This is what you say! I am coming because football is wonderful and everyone should play it where they want, plus there's a game!!!!"
The former Manchester City forward still appeared ruffled when the team arrived at the Naples train station, and struck out at a cameraman from Sport Mediaset in front of hundreds of fans there to greet them.
