He said: "I think we were both wrong," Cellino told the BBC's World Cup.
I thought coming to Brescia, which is his city, would compromise him a lot.
“At the same time, I think my former coach [Eugenio Corini] managed it badly.
"He doesn't show up for training, he doesn't seem very committed to, say, the club's future." That's the problem.
“Balotelli has a Series A contract, but he doesn’t have a Series B contract. So if they leave us, Balotelli will no longer have a contract.
"Balotelli obviously doesn't like to stay in Italy anymore because he doesn't."
