De Jong impressed with Balotelli’s new attitude

Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong has welcomed controversial striker Mario Balotelli’s change in attitude at the club, according to Metro.

Balotelli has been an outspoken figure since joining City from Internazionale in 2010, and has struggled with disciplinary issues, but scored his fourth goal in four games in a 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

“I think he is getting it now, slowly but surely,” said de Jong. “You have to give him credit for the last couple of weeks, not just on the pitch but in training.

“He is behaving quite normally for him. Nobody ever doubted his qualities but with great qualities you have big responsibilities as well – not only on the pitch but outside as well. I think he has shown that in the last couple of weeks.”
