Mario Balotelli included two of the Premier League’s all-time great midfielders in his ultimate XI.

The Italian forward spent three years at Manchester City a season with Liverpool in 2014.

When asked to name his ultimate XI during a Puma Football Instagram chat with Thierry Henry, Balotelli picked his former City teammate Yaya Toure in his midfield along with his old Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Italy legend Andrea Pirlo.

“Pirlo guarantees you 10 goals a year, Yaya can do it all,” he said. “That’s a good team I think, although I left you [Henry] out, I left Cristiano [Ronaldo] out.”
