'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mario Balotelli Will Move From Club To Club

Mario Balotelli aka Biblotelli has the world at his feet but he's simply a loose cannon and in the end he will move from club-to-club and then more than likely his career will fizzle out before it really got started.

Over the last few weeks much as been written about the 20-year-old Manchester City striker but Thursday nights Kung Fu kick and subsequent dismissal against Dynamo Kyiv is just another nail in his coffin.

Brief history

Mario started his professional football career at Lumezzane and only played for the first team twice before having an unsuccessful trial at FC Barcelona and subsequently joining Internazionale in 2007. Roberto Mancini brought Balotelli into the first team, but when Mancini left, Balotelli's disciplinary record fell away. Balotelli had a strained relationship with new head coach JosÚ Mourinho and in January 2009 he was suspended from Inter's first team after a number of disciplinary problems.

His disciplinary did not improve when in March 2010 he came under heavy criticism by the Inter fans after he publicly appeared on the Italian show Striscia la Notizia wearing a Milan jersey. This damaged the possibility of him having a career at Inter, but he did make several appearances after that. However, he again caused controversy by throwing his Inter jersey on the floor when he was booed off his own supporters in the UEFA Champions League semi-final tie with Barcelona.

Its public knowledge he had a troubled childhood but I have a feeling, despite his apology via the official MCFC website yesterday his days, not only at Manchester City FC but his career within the professional game will come to a sudden and abrupt end.

Mark my words - Balotelli will move from club-to-club before disappearing into obscurity.

What a waste of talent, what a shame - if only?

Disagree Tudor. He will stay, grow out of his nappies, move on to solids and learn to put his toys away after playing with them. He may still need a dummy from time to time but he'll be OK.

He an extraordinary ability to press the self destruct button.

I said my piece in the last Ped Report. I can't see him making it at City. There is no sign of comfort that he is here for any sort of duration and he is dangerous to have in the team. I think it's splinter time for him until May.

But if you look at the behind the scenes pics, he always seems very happy and chummy with other players, he was getting a piggy back from Chappy in Carrington Today the other day. Then he steps on the pitch and his attitude does a 180, almost seems deliberate.
