Before Man City’s Europa League second-leg with Dynamo Kyiv last night…



“”If it stays 11 versus 11, we would have probably won, but he picked up a red card for doing something really stupid.

“The problem for Mario is that he thinks he could be a fantastic player, but when he does something stupid like that, it is difficult for me, difficult for him and difficult for the team.”

Roberto Mancini – who also hinted that Balotelli will be dropped for City’s Premier League game with Chelsea this Sunday.

City won 1-0 on the night thanks to a goal from Aleksandar Kolarov, but it wasn’t enough to overturn Kyiv’s 2-0 lead from the first-leg – with Balotelli’s 40th-minute dismissal further hindering what would prove to be an insurmountable task.

What a prannet.

    What an utter tool. I wonder if he even knows how to chew his own food!

  2. Irshaad says:

    Oh Mario Mario Mario… I bet his mom still changes him by the looks of it… It’s not Rocket Science you know.. It’s just a bib.
    Oh well atleast he has a back up career after Football… ” A Circus Act “

  3. Bobbity says:

    Who the hell does he think he is? Nigel de Jong?

  4. Nuno says:

    He plays with de Jong, so I guess something like that may be usual in training…
    You’d expect a guy who plays football for a living would know how to put a bib, but I guess Man City also had to buy a babysitter for him. And the look on his face after he failed that shot is just… that guy has to be from another planet, his stupidity can only be compared with his ego. And they’re both huge…

  5. @Bobbity. De Jong at least gives his all when he plays, this season hes been a crucial piece in citys squad. Balo , I dunno ,month to month he does something that just, ugh , its aggravating to say the least. I am aware not many people on the squad are too fond of him (which I hear he likes) I think mancinis babying him a bit too much. and I also feel he will be sold in summer at discount to milan…

    Hahaha he wanted a blue bib. Idiot

  7. The Yank says:

    Mario Bib-atelli, that’s hilarious.

  8. Dan says:

    Maybe City should invest in some velcro bibs? God knows they can afford it.

  9. D Cubed says:

    After the match he’s quoted as saying “I don’t know what a bib is to be honest. But next time I play in the Europa League, I’ll keep a close eye on it. There is only one piece of clothing a tiny bit better than me: the rooster glove hat”

  10. Ryan says:

    What a petulant clown this guy is. I wish Totti would have snapped is fuc**** femur.

    god he is stupid

  12. AussieGooner says:

    Haha…Balotelli is so stupid.

    I heard a story that oneday Mario was at training & having all sorts of trouble running & shooting. Apparently he was getting real frustrated & complained that his feet also hurt. Well, I hear that the bootboy came up to him, noticed he had his boots on the opposite feet & said, “Mario, you’re boots are on the wrong feet”, to which Mario stood there looking down at his feet for all of half a minute. He then looked at the bootboy and with a look of bewilderment on his face said, “No they’re not, these are my feet”.

  13. […] Dzeko takes the proverbial out of fellow Man City striker Mario Balotelli’s abject failure to don a bib before their Europa League tie with Dynamo Kiev last […]

    So funny… he looks like a big baby trying to put on that bib
