There’s no stopping Mario Balotelli, isn’t it? Well, as far as scoring goals this season is concerned, he has been stopped up until now. But that doesn’t seem to affect the former Manchester City and Liverpool striker at all as he knows how to distract himself from the critics. This time, he took to Instagram to show off his new bizarre braided Mohican hairstyle through a photo collage.
That’s just typical Mario Balotelli, to say the least. Captioning “Last of the Mohicans,” the Italian striker asked his 7.8 million followers their thoughts and indeed received mixed reactions as one said “Super Dope” while the other had an extremely contrary reaction; “Hell na”.
The 28-year-old striker has never shied away from donning some of the shadiest hairstyles and is known for the same rather than his goal-scoring prowess. Talking of goals, Balotelli registered his personal best scoring tally last season, scoring 26 goals in 38 games, but is yet to open his tally in five games he has played so far. And yes, he already has your yellow cards in his kitty.
Speaking of hairstyles, Balotelli has time and again surprised his fans with something extremely unique, hence we decided to do something distinctive on our part. PS: It’s just for fun Mario!
Under the new manager Patrick Vieira, he has struggled to get a place in the squad let alone talking of striking goals. The former Arsenal midfielder – Vieira – has told the striker he needs to lose more weight before getting his place back. Balotelli joined the club’s pre-season training late as his move to Marseille failed to materialize.
“He came back with a few extra kilos, but we’re trying to understand why he came back like that,” Vieira was quoted by ESPN.
