Two months after selling Mario Balotelli to Milan, Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has come to the realization that losing the 22-year-old striker has hurt his club. The combination of Balotelli and Mancini's frequent clashes and Milan's willingness to pay the €20+ million necessary to bring him to the club he supported as a child ended Mario's productive two and half years in England (both as a footballer and a headline generator) before he could completely fulfill the potential Mancini always knew he had.
Samir Nasri was named man of the match in Man City's 4-0 win against Newcastle on Saturday. It was only the third Premier League start of 2013 for a player who has been one of the many wobbly floats in City's parade of disappointment this season and after the match, manager Roberto Mancini expressed his frustration with him.
Yep. Some dozy pillock at the Pala K go-karting complex on the outskirts of Milan decided it'd be a good idea to let Mario Balotelli rag his brand-new, £200,000, gleaming white Ferrari 450 (apparently bought to ease the pain of splitting up with girlfriend Fanny Neguesha)around their tiny, twisty track.
For some apparent reason, Mario Balotelli decided to mimic kicking a ball at Vincenzo Montella, Fiorentina's coach, before the match between Milan and Fiorentina this weekend. The look which then permeates Montella's face is one of utter perfection. No one look in history has defined a player so much as this one defines everything Mario Balotelli and everything he's ever done.
Some Portuguese graffiti artist/designer/vegan Crunk night organiser by the name of Mr Dheo has created a specially customised pair of camouflage Nike boots for Mario Balotelli to go with his disgusting Bentley Continental.

Perhaps driven mad by Milan's garish new gold kit, Sulley Muntari was sent off in just the 40th minute of their match against Roma for trying to physically restrain the referee from showing Mario Baotelli a yellow card.

Mario Balotelli has been named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world for 2013. The list has previous included the likes of Lionel Messi and Didier Drogba, but 22-year-old Balotelli is the only footballer to be named this year and one of four athletes along with LeBron James, Olympic skierLindsey Vonn and tennis player Li Na.
Mario Balotelli has displayed an increase in production on the pitch and more maturity off it since his move from Man City to Milan at the end of January. This improvement is made clear by the latest story about him. You see, instead of letting his friends burn down the bathroom of his rented mansion by setting off fireworks inside it, he was simply caught smoking a cigarette inside the bathroom of a train car on the way to Milan's match against Fiorentina.
Mario Balotelli's love of camouflage led him to customize his Bentley in a war machine paint job. That car ended up getting urinated on by a Manchester United fan before Balotelli left Man City for Milan, but no one would dare to relieve themselves on Portuguese artist Mr. Dheo's custom Balotelli boots.
Since Mario Balotelli joined Milan in January, he has combined with Stephan El Shaarawy and Mbaye Niang to form a youthful trident that has helped the Rossoneri to third in the Serie A table. The trio have formed a quick understanding between them that apparently extends to their shared inclination to sleep on the luggage racks in train cars.
