Former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is never far from the headlines and he returned to them last night.
Balotelli, who left the Reds on a free transfer to French side Nice, was sent off in injury time against Bordeaux for kicking out at defender Igor Lewczuk in a game that finished 0-0.
In his defence we’ve seen a lot worse get yellow and Lewczuk gets away with a shy elbow on the 2011/12 Premier League winner. After been given the red Balotelli walks from the field and proceeds to give his shirt to the fans before pushing a camera out of his face – never change Mario!
It’s never boring for Nice fans with him though as he’s either scored, been booked or sent off in every game he’s played for them. Balotelli has netted eight times in nine appearances for Nice and the Italian’s agent Mino Raiola has claimed that clubs in England are interested in bring him back. Is he worth another shot?
