The God Fathertelli

Mario Balotelli has been accused of glamourising the Italian mafia after he visited a notorious stronghold of the Camorra, a criminal organisation based in Naples. Balotelli was taken on a tour of Scampia, a dangerous southern port-city where drug dealing is rife. The Italian newspaper, La Stampa, accused the City ace of wandering through the gritty housing estates of the area “as though it was Disney World”. Balotelli was taken on the tour by two alleged Camorra godfathers last June, according to a leaked anti-mafia police report.

No sooner had Mario Balotelli been involved in a water bombing incident has the controversial star yet again caught the headlines. According to reports from Italy, the 20 year old striker, who had missed City’s open-top bus parade for ‘family reasons’, was involved in a scuffle outside a nightclub after eyeing-up another man’s girlfriend. The Gazzetta Dello Sport said that Balotelli had been in Milan’s trendy Lotus bar with friends “enjoying some man-to-man marking with the ladies” when he started giving the eyes to a Senegalese woman there with her boyfriend. The Gazzetta added that the woman’s boyfriend slapped Balotelli twice in the face. The police were not involved and Balotelli was taught a “hard lesson”.

The report also quoted a Lotus member of staff who said “Balotelli’s visit to our place was irrelevant and uninfluential – he would have been better off not coming…When he comes he doesn’t drink anything and he doesn’t pay when he does. When he came the time before he left without settling his bill”. Balotelli was said to have visited several nightclubs in Milan that evening, even outrunning the press by speeding through red lights.

But Balotelli insists he isn’t such a bad boy, saying in the wake of the FA Cup win that “I just want people to see me as a normal 20-year-old lad, a strong footballer but not a super bad boy. It’s easy to handle me – who says otherwise hasn’t understood anything”.
