Mario Balotelli was signed as a transfer from Inter Milan byManchester City in the year 2010. The club was never the same since the arrivalof Balotelli.
The reason is the erratic behavior which leads the Italian playeron a course towards professional suicide. The worst is that the FootballAssociation of England [or the FA] allows this behavior to continue in spite ofthe consequences for him and football.
The consequences are dire and can hurt Balotelli in the long run.It can also cast a shadow over the FA over why it did not help Balotelli.
There have been attempts to help Balotelli with one example beingRoberto Mancini who is manager of Manchester City. Unfortunately, Balotelli wasin denial of any problems inside and outside of the field until recently.
The time has come to enumerate three of the cardinal problems ofBalotelli:
- I. AutomobileAccident
According to an article published in The Guardian, Balotelli wasinvolved in an automobile accident in the area of Manchester known as DeansgateLocks. He crashed his Bentley [one automobile make] against another automobilemake the Vauxhall Corsa.
While there were no injuries, a female passenger was taken to thehospital. Balotelli once crashed a 2010 Audi as well.
- II. Relationshipsof a Hypersexual Nature
An article publishedin The Daily Mail revealed thatBalotelli had a relationship with Jennifer Thompson who was working as aprostitute. Balotelli was not the only person with a relationship with Ms.Thompson.
Ms. Thompson was involved in a relationship with Wayne Rooney. Theassociation between Balotelli and Rooney does not stop there.
Balotelli met a model whose name is Holly Henderson and proposedto her. The sports world was surprisedwhen it was discovered that Ms. Henderson is Wayne Rooney's second cousin.
The revelation was published in The Daily Mail.
- III. AssaultiveBehavior
According to an article published in the BBCSports website.Balotelli tackled Alex Song during a match between Manchester City and Arsenal.Balotelli received a red card for his actions.
The FA did not even ban Balotelli for this behavior and sent thewrong signals by this lack of action.and this reinforces his erratic behavior.Who cannot forget the report by ESPNSoccernet of Balotelli throwing darts from his room window at theManchester City youth team?
Balotelli justified his dart throwing by one small sentence.Balotelli said that he was "bored"without going into details.
Balotelli is either mad or irresponsible with this callous excusefor throwing darts at people. He could have hurt someone or caused anotherperson to go blind.
In the USA, a person like Balotelli would be in jail or in amental institution for such behavior.
Balotelli claims (according to The Mirror) thathe is going to see a Psychiatrist to clean up his act. According to ESPNSoccernet, Inter Milan and Juventus told Manchester City that they do not wantBalotelli this summer
