Ancelotti rules out move for Balotelli

Carlo Ancelotti says his Paris Saint-Germain team do not need Mario Balotelli as Zlatan Ibrahimovic will do the same job for many years to come.

The Italian striker has been linked with several clubs across Europe following his training ground confrontation with Roberto Mancini, but the 53-year-old coach will not try to sign another forward.

“Today, with Ibra and his position, we are covered in attack for many years to come. I do not think we need Balotelli,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“Balotelli is a great player, he and Ibra are compatible but that is not the question. We have (Ezequiel) Lavezzi, (Kevin) Gameiro and (Jeremy) Menez who are also compatible.”

Ancelotti also gave his thoughts on the bust-up involving Balotelli, and feels the situation was probably blown out of all proportion.

“I do not think it was as bad as the newspapers made it out to be. I cannot judge Balotelli as a person anyway, only as a player and for me he is a good striker,” he said.
