The incorrigible Mario Balotelli still makes his own in Turkey
Why always me? Why always me ? A few years ago, when he was playing for Manchester City, Mario Balotelli (31) celebrated one of his goals by showing this message in his jersey. An image that had been around the world, as the enfant terrible of Italian football leaves no one indifferent. This Tuesday night, another of the Super Mario celebrations entered legend.
Entered into play a few moments earlier against Besiktas (6th day of Süper Lig), the Italian international (36 caps, 14 goals) sent a powerful strike under the crossbar of the Istanbul goalkeeper. To celebrate this nice goal, which would also allow his club, Adana Demirspor, to obtain the point of the draw (3-3), the Transalpine took the direction of the sidelines of the BJK, addressing the opposing coach Sergen Yalçin, showing that he had it in his head.

A few years earlier, the Turkish technician had indeed declared that the attacker was “brainless”. The n ° 9, who received a yellow for this behavior, did not forget and did not fail to remind the person concerned. The latter did not particularly appreciate. “Balotelli pointed the finger straight at me. This is the first time that I see a player heading towards an opposing coach. The referee showed a yellow card. Balotelli is not my interlocutor. I don’t understand why he did that to me, ”he said before concluding. “I don’t know if he did because he couldn’t come to us last season. He showed his level. It’s a shame for him. A very dishonest gesture ”.
The celebration of Azzurro goes quite badly in Turkey, especially as relations between the two clubs are good. Its president even had to apologize while after the final whistle, the tone continued to rise between the striker, also involved in the goal of equalizing his team after extra time, and the Istanbul bench. These events show, however, that the pride of the champion is still very present. With 2 goals in 6 appearances since his arrival in Turkey, Mario Balotelli is still causing a sensation, on and off the pitch.
