Mario Balotelli just loves making the headlines – it seems as if he is prepared to do anything to get himself on the back pages, (sometimes the front pages too).
Let’s run through the list of Balotelli antics. From celebrating a goal at Old Trafford with the words ‘why always me?’ strewn across his shirt to nearly burning his house down with a set of fireworks. Then we have randomly entering press conferences when your manager is speaking to shake everyone’s hands to struggling to put on a training bib. Poor Mario.
But wait is Mario really poor? The Italian striker is widely regarded as one of the gems of world football despite his pastimes off the field. His talents have finally been realised after leaving father figure (and child-minder) Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium to join up with AC Milan (this via a fight with Mancini close to the end of his career in training).
It seems Mario’s talents aren’t limited to the football field however. Here is the great man playing piano for the legend that is Andrea Pirlo. The song is no less than the Italian national anthem. The charismatic Balotelli clearly doesn’t take himself too seriously unlike many of his Italian teammates (Pirlo himself perhaps?).
