Mario Balotelli LOVES attention. Absolutely craves it. And so, when he became bored over the weekend having missed out on a place in the Italy squad he took it upon himself to create a new ‘activity’ at Manchester City as he decided why the hell not against throwing a few darts at fellow City youth players.
The Independent reported yesterday that Balotelli had thrown ‘at least one dart’ and the matter is sure to interest City boss Roberto Mancini as he was away when the incident took place:
City are yet to establish a full understanding of why Balotelli threw the dart and will give him the chance to offer an explanation before deciding what action to take. Manager Roberto Mancini will also need to be brought up to speed with the incident, as he has been away from the club. He will seek an explanation from the 20-year-old striker before discussing the incident with senior executives at the club.
Mercifully, nobody was hurt during the incident, which may have spared Balotelli from substantial disciplinary action which would leave his City future looking in even more serious doubt.
The club appear to view the incident as a foolish prank.
It’s only a matter of time ’till Roberto shows Mario the door. I’ll give it the Summer, tops.
