Balotelli Needs Psychiatric Help

Balotelli Needs Psychiatric Help

Mario Balotelli has become a liability especially after he was sent off after 36 minutes in City's 1-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv. In my opinion his foul can only be described as needless and holly pathetic, cynical foul.

'Buffoon' Balotelli is a man on the verge of imploding. He appears to be suffering from sort of mental illness and treatment can only be the answer. Why I hear you ask? Well, just look at his body language. He growls and stamps his foot when decisions don't go his way. Nothing unusual there as there are dozens of players with similar attitudes but Mario is different from any other player I've watched kick a ball. He's a nasty bugger and more often or not I end up cringing every time I see him represent MCFC just in case he does something irrational - tonight was no different. Yes, you've guessed it; he receives a red and at the same time lets his fellow team-mates down.

Since moving from Inter Milan in the summer the immature 20-year-old has started 15 games and in that time he's received two red and eight yellow cards. Unless he changes his whole perception then it will be a matter of time before a player or official reports his challenges / assaults on the field of play to the police. Oh yes, no one is immune and if its clear an assault has occurred Mario will need a solicitor not just a psychiatrist.

He has an abundance of talent but his head is off the Richter scale. Please Roberto, get rid as soon as possible.

Already posted this on the stats article but felt it should be here as well. "This fool has never looked like a Manchester City player in my eyes. Drop him then sell to Milan ASAP. Mancini needs to take a look at himself as regards to this childish moron".

Can we get a hypnotist to convince him he's a model professional? Do that and we have the next best striker in the world. In the meantime, his attitude will turn him into the biggest case of "what could have been" ever.

Speaking of the nutcase, here's a pic of him getting out of his car and confronting Kiev fans tonight: http://s3.amazonaws.com/twitpic/photos/full/259377748.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=0ZRYP5X5F6FSMBCCSE82&Expires=1300395910&Signature=NICqhXc6VTq8wtg8mVdeUMTHV5g%3D

Balotelli should never put on a City shirt again. He will be the reason Mancini gets the boot at the end of the season. He offers very little to the team when he's on the field - what the management see in him is a mystery.

Sorry but this Balotelli is a disgrace and I really don't see how he can face his team mates and look them straight in the eye without shame.

He's a complete idiot, but its old news. Whats interesting though is that the enevitable has happened and the hoards of City fans haved turned on their "super" Mario. Like Adebayor, Like Robinho. Which mercenary will be next i wonder.

Perhaps exercise a little discretion with that mighty, mighty checkbook of yours next time.

Mario is a justified risk though, he is a headcase but if one day his mind clicks into gear he'll be one of the best strikers in the world. He is incredibly gifted and has 10 goals in 18 games in an injury-struck first season in the toughest league in the world, a bunch of them off the bench. National darling Rooney has played 10 more games and scored 1 less goal. With our money, Balotelli was a justified gamble that still has a chance if we can somehow find a way to make him act like an adult. I'd start with a leading sports psychologist.
