Why always me?

Ah yes, Mario Balotelli. From setting off fireworks in his house to pitch-based mischief, the “bib” saga, throwing darts at youth players (yes, that actually happened), training ground bust-ups, and numerous automobile infractions, the Italian was never too far away from controversy.

The former Manchester City maverick is set to make his return to the Etihad to play one last game in blue to play in Vincent Kompany’s upcoming testimonial.

Balotelli qualified as a City ‘Legend’ and will appear in September at the very place he had a hand in creating perhaps the most iconic goal in Premier League history (you know the one).

Fans have swarmed City’s announcement post with their reactions…

Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Pablo Zabaleta, Wayne Bridge, Gareth Barry, Nigel de Jong, Samir Nasri, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Stephen Ireland and Craig Bellamy have also been confirmed.
