Nice coach Patrick Vieira has admitted that he 'would like to slam Mario Balotelli up against the wall' after working with the mercurial forward.

The Arsenal legend has found working with the Italian very challenging since taking the job at the Ligue 1 side.

The Italy international continues to frustrate his managers, and Vieira is the latest to have to attempt to guide him.

" When it comes to Mario, I want to answer back, or just slam him up against the wall or leave him hanging by his collar on the coat rack, but I can’t, as I’m no longer a player."

"I don’t want to say something I’ll regret. I am trying to be constructive in my comments to him.”
