Mario Balotelli's, agent Mino Raiola, claims to have found the solution to the Italian striker's problems.

"We'll cut off his tongue!" Raiola joked after the Nice striker was again found himself at the centre of controversy Balotelli was sent off last weekend for swearing at the referee in English during Nice's 1-0 victory over Lorient.

"I've found the solution, we'll cut off his tongue," said Raiola, who is the agent of some of the world's biggest names, including Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Gianluigi Donnaruma.

"You don't need a language to play football, so we're going to cut it off," he laughed.

"In all seriousness, though, I know that he made a big mistake. He can have no excuses, it's something that he knows he must improve on. It's sad for himself and the team."
