The short film will be titled 'I am not a monkey' with Balotelli plus Arsenal legend and three times African player of the year will talk about their individual experiences of racism during their professional football careers.

In the documentary, Balotelli speaks honestly about the racist abuse he has had to endure throughout his career in Italy, England and France.

 "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.

The programme will be shown on Canal+ later this month and clips have been released in advance.
