And this is the same guy rumoured to be coming to the Emirates Stadium. Ok o, we will watch and see
Rarely a week goes by without Mario Balotelli hitting the headlines – and not always for footballing reasons.
And this week is little different, thanks to the Italian’s wacky new hair-do, which is certain to set tongues wagging.
Never one to do anything the conventional way – think ‘bib-gate’ or ‘firework-gate’ – the striker, who has been linked with a move back to the Premier League recently, is certainly not going to be seen with a run-of-the-mill short back and sides.
But even by Balotelli’s standards, this is an impressive effort.
Luckily, he appears to have a very patient barber.
