He’s even crazier than Suarez
You have to be pretty crazy to bite three separate footballers in the space of three years. In fact, you’re either a cannibal, a vampire, or you really don’t think biting people in front of worldwide audiences is that big a deal, which of course means you’re absolutely mad.
Yet, if Luis Suarez is Fred West on the nutbag scale, then Mario Balotelli is Charles Manson, aka, this guy:
What kind of lunatic, for example, fills an entire Panini sticker album with pictures of himself?!
There is something sinister about a man possessing so many adhesive portraits of his own effigy. It makes you wonder where else he put them. Another slightly sinister instance – the Italian dancing to Biggie, reading Zlatan Ibrahimovich’s autobiography and ironing:
There is something very wrong here.
But of course, as we all know, this is just the tip of the Balotelli ice-berg. Some of his more famed nutbag exploits include setting off fireworks in his en suite toilet, visiting a woman’s prison for lols, shooting a gun on the roof of an Italian car park and attending an interview, whilst playing for Inter Milan, in an AC Milan jersey.
In fact, the Liverpool target has done so many ridiculous things that someone has made a countdown video of the top 50. Enjoy:
