Balotelli in racism documentary

Mario Balotelli, Samuel Eto’o and Patrick Vieira are among stars taking part in a French documentary on racism in football, titled ‘I am not a monkey.’

The programme will be shown on Canal+ on January 6 and clips have been released in advance.

They include an interview with Italy international Balotelli, who comments on the abuse he has received, including in his own homeland.

“I have nothing against monkeys,” he shrugs. “In fact, I can 100 per cent tell you that monkeys are more intelligent than them (racists).”

The documentary ‘Je ne suis pas un singe’ was made by Marc Sauvourel and former Roma midfielder Olivier Dacourt.
