  • The striker joined the club last month but has been serving a four-game ban
  • He says he has worked harder in the last six weeks than over the last 10 years
  • Balotelli is nonplussed over the prospect of facing Cristiano Ronaldo on debut 

Mario Balotelli is set make his Brescia debut on Tuesday when they take on Italian champions Juventus at Stadio Mario Rigamonti. 

The forward signed for his hometown club last month but has been serving a four-game suspension after being sent off as a Marseille player on the final day of last season. 

The 29-year-old is now available to Brescia boss Euginio Corini ahead of the fifth round of Serie A fixtures, and Balotelli believes he is as fit as he’s ever been.

‘I think I have worked more during this month and a half than during the last ten years of my career,’ the Italy international told DAZN. 

I’m approaching a weight form that I rarely had. The last time was in Manchester City when I was 20 years old.’ 

On the prospect of facing Cristiano Ronaldo in his first game in a Brescia shirt, Balotelli said: ‘It does not interest me to play against Cristiano. 

‘He is a great player, the best in the world with Messi, but it does not excite me, it will be a match like the others.’

Balotelli believes he’s the fittest he’s been since winning the Premier League in 2012
