We can now finally lay the 2011 firework fiasco in Mario Balotelli’s home to rest.
Pictures obtained by The Mail show the carnage unleashed on the unsuspecting Manchester bathroom that for so long we could only speculate about.
Balotelli himself wasn’t actually responsible for lighting the fireworks, a friend of his has taken the blame, but the enigmatic Italian still took the brunt of the criticism.
And it was in response to this particular backlash that the Liverpool striker wore the now celebrated ‘Why Always Me’ t-shirt after scoring twice against Man United.
Fitting then that these pictures would finally be released on the eve of the Manchester derby on halloween weekend.
