Simon Skrabb has recalled playing with Mario Balotelli at Brescia last season.

The former Italy striker is now playing in Turkey with Adana Demirspor.

Finland international Skrabb said: "I immediately thought he was a good guy. At first he was a kind of captain for the team. Then the confinement came and he disappeared. He was a kind of strange guy, chasing people with lighters and hairspray to set them on fire. You never knew what he was going to come up with.

"In Brescia no one spoke English and I remember that, the first time I had Mario Balotelli as an interpreter, at first everything was incredible. When I arrived it was a beautiful winter, I made my debut against AC Milan and we qualified with Finland for the European Championship."
