Italy international Balotelli finished ahead of Arsenal and England midfielder Wilshere for the Turin sports newspaper's award, and reckons he was a deserving winner.

"I am delighted to receive this award," said Balotelli to Tuttosport.

"Who should have won this award but me? Two years ago I finished sixth and a year ago fourth. It was finally my turn.

"I don't know who Wilshere is but the next time I play against Arsenal I will keep a close eye on him.

"Perhaps I can show him (Wilshere) the Golden Boy trophy and remind him that I won it!"
