Mario Balloteli ” I challenge you all African footballers to put money together with me to leave the Racist Europe and build stadiums in Africa and develop our youth. We have money we can build at least 5 world class stadium in each country and sign a petition that no players will be exported to Europe ever again. Here in Africa they will play under love of their sisters and brothers with no one singing racists chants on the stands against them. We are more talented.
