Mario Balotelli has regretted his decision to choose Italy over his native country Ghana, according to his biological father, Thomas Bawuah.

Balotelli was born to Ghanaian parents in Italy but was adopted by an Italian couple as his then poverty-stricken Ghanaian family could not take proper care of him.

The striker grew up rather allying himself to the culture and beliefs of the European country, ditching his roots to commit his international future to the Azzuris (Italy's senior men's football team).

And now the Italian forward is disappointed with what he describes as “unfair” treatment by Italy, and has now regretted choosing the Azurri over the Black Stars

“Himself (Balotelli), has started realising he made a big mistake playing for the Italian National Team and he has told friends about it”, Bawuah told GazzettaGhana.com

“He is not being treated well, true they don’t show him the love he deserves for his great talent and skill. I think that all he gets is abuse, especially from the media here and that is because he is black”.

“They don’t like him and it started from the beginning, they didn’t want to see a black boy like himself taking glory of the Italian National Team”,

Balotelli, represented Italy at the 2012 goes down to become the first and only Black African who has featured for the European country.
