Mario Balotelli Posts Most Balotelli Tweet Ever On Transfer Deadline Day

Another transfer deadline day came and went in the football world and, yet again, nothing of any note happened, just like it's not happened on every deadline day since Manchester City signed Robinho in 2008.

No one summed up the tepid nature of the day better than Mario Balotelli, who took to Twitter to share his thoughts on what had been the highlights of the day, in his opinion.

The dealings of clubs across Europe held little interest for the Nice forward, who was preoccupied with something else:


For those non-Italian speakers among you, the former Manchester City striker's tweet reads: "The girls on Sky Sport calciomercato are definitely more interesting than the signings being made."


Balotelli has been in fine form since moving to Ligue 1, scoring 11 goals in 16 matches in all competitions and spearheading Nice's title push.

But we all know why we really love Super Mario - the entertainment value.

Balo's bib


Remember the time he couldn't put on a vest?

We had to wear these to play netball in school and even at primary school I'm pretty sure we all managed it. My favourite bit is when he clearly decides it's 'broken' and throws it. How patient is that man?

Car trouble


Super Mario and cars get along even worse than the Italian and bibs. In 2011 it was reported this his white Maserati had been impounded 27 times, which mustn't leave much time for driving.

After just two weeks with Man City he crashed his Audi R8, prompting police to arrive and breathalyse, question and search him.


They found him to have £5,000 cash in his back pocket, when the cop asked why he was carrying so much money he said, 'because I am rich' which seems fair enough to me.

Prison break

Mario and his younger brother, Enock, were arrested back in 2011 when they were caught taking a little walk through a women's prison just outside Milan. He is reported to have told the police that he 'fancied having a look'.

Bathroom fireworks

Ahead of the Manchester derby in 2011 (it seems like 2011 was when he did most of his best work), Balo decided to throw a party at his £3 million rented mansion in Cheshire. According to the man himself, one of his friends let off some fireworks in the downstairs bathroom - as you do.

Obviously, this ended badly and the property was severely smoke damaged and the bathroom was gutted. The damages ran up to around £400,000 and Mario was forced to move into a hotel.

It didn't stop him scoring two goals against United, though.

The cherry on the cake, for me, is that shortly after this he was asked to front a firework safety campaign. Beautiful.

Shopping spree

When he first moved into his mansion his mum sent him to John Lewis to pick up some essential cleaning bits. You know the sort of thing, a mop, bleach, bin bags etc.

So off Mario pops. He came back a short while later with two Vespas, a giant trampoline and a Scalectrix. Oh, and no cleaning products.

Bullseye Balotelli

Mario was once fined a week's wages - £100,000 - for throwing darts at the youth team from a window during training. Thankfully he was a shit shot, so he missed.

The Italian has always been a source of entertainment. Please, Mario, never change.
