The latest and greatest after Mario Balotelli’s latest and greatest moment, seeing a red card end his Manchester City career. Sort of.
Of course it’s not news that the world thinks Mario Balotelli is in dire need of something, whether it be loads of psychotherapy or a swift kick up the arse from a very large boot. You usually don’t hear the former coming from someone in a position of authority at the federation which represents these footballers, however. So that’s new.
“First he is a role model, but also he is playing in a team and he is playing against another team and he has to respect his colleagues.
“I think that we have to realise and conclude that, after all these incidents, my personal opinion is that he needs, really, professional help.
He could also use a haircut, but that’s beside the point.
