Inspired by Italian legend Mario Balotelli and his car trouble, which included £15,000 in parking fines, 27 visits to the impound lot, and a minor accident in 2012.
WHO IS MARIO BALOTELLI?
by Jon Townsend
At Manchester City, his often apathetic attitude and regular foul-ups on the pitch triggered a massive rift between himself and the British media, his own teammates, and Roberto Mancini. The narrative of Balotelli’s mischief making is well-documented. For example, when police supposedly questioned why he had £5,000 in his back pocket after crashing his Audi R8, he didn’t disappoint with his response, “Because I am rich." If he has an angelic grin, Mephistopheles is surely at the control panel of his mind.
