Super Mario Balotelli Football AC Milan & Italy Football Shirts & Kits
One of the most flamboyant and controversial players in the game today is still only 23, having already played for three top European clubs; Inter Milan (2007-2010), Man City (2010-2013) and currently for Italian Serie A club AC Milan.
Born in Palermo in 1990 to Ghanian parents, Super Mario has scored over 60 league and 12 International goals for the Azzurri. His place in English Premier League folklore cemented after scoring a hat trick in the derby against Manchester United during the 2011-12 season... which culminated in Man City lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time in their history.
Public interest has invaded his private life, with constant tabloid pictures of overt opulence coupled with extraordinary stories of charitable donations he has undoubtedly divided opinion. This prompted the kit manager at Manchester City to produce a special celebration T-shirt for Balotelli to wear during scoring celebrations... and at just 22 years old, the Why Always Me? message became a perfect illustration of his exuberance both on and off the pitch, and a sign of someone just utterly enjoying the fruits of his labour/talent. Sadly the start of the 13/14 season saw an unsettled player, with constant reports of troubles between himself and the Manager Roberto Mancini.
