Mario Balotelli?s footballing history reads more like a list of criminal charges than a trophy-laden resume.
It seems that no matter where he is, the 22-year-old inspires controversy, with a viral video emerging showing him violently kicking Milan teammate Andrea Poli in training, for no apparent reason.
Despite having been told to mind his behaviour by none other than the Pope last week, the Italian international seems in no hurry to change his infamous ways.
Poli, his victim, seemed both confused and annoyed at the sudden jab sent his way by his teammate, but Balotelli merely drifted off as though nothing had happened.
It?s unknown whether the knee-come-kick was a way of venting anger that the former City striker is prone to accumulating, or simply a jest meant more to provoke a reaction than anything else, but Balotelli will need to sharpen up his act if he is to maintain his spot.
