Balotelli looking to repay City faith

Mario Balotelli insists he is enjoying his time at Manchester City and believes the club can win the Premier League title this season.

Balotelli, 20, joined City from Inter in the summer, but there have been regular reports that he has struggled to adapt to England and he has come under fire for his continued lack of discipline.

He has been persistently linked with AC Milan and this week the club's vice-president, Adriano Galliani, refused to rule out a move for the forward. "There is time," Galliani said. "We'll see in the future."

Balotelli, though, says he is enjoying his time at Eastlands and that he is working to repay Roberto Mancini for the faith he has shown in him.

"I hope the fans know that I like it here and I am really proud to write the history of this club," he told Goal.com. "It is a great experience.

"All the people at Manchester City are fantastic and you can see the club growing every day. I try every day to repay the trust the manager and the club showed in me by signing me.

"It is quite different from Italian football but I like it. The stadiums in the Premier League are fantastic and the way the supporters experience the game is extraordinary."

City are currently fourth in the Premier League, ten points behind leaders Manchester United with eight games remaining, but Balotelli insists they are capable of winning the title.

Asked about his ambitions for the current season, he said: "Win win win. [Qualifying for] the Champions League next season. Winning the Premier League title. We want, and we can win, the title."
