Liverpool's Mario Balotelli

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli may not be perceived as the most intelligent footballer going but he came up with a very clever response to avoid answering a journalist's question.

Balotelli, who nearly burned down his house by setting off fireworks indoors, was in Italy this week to see his brother Enoch play in an exhibition game when he was approached by reporters asking what he thought of his sibling's display.

Speaking in Italian the 24 year-old said; "Beware, I do not speak Italian any more."

Given the fact that only managed one Premier League goal in his first season at Liverpool, he may consider not speaking English either.
