Fetching footwear as Balotelli uses his boots to make the headlines
Never shy on making the headlines, AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli used his boots to do just that last night as he unveiled his latest footwear during last night’s 2-2 draw with Roma.
Having gained such notoriety off the field for his mad-cap antics to match some fine individual displays on the pitch, his career thus far has been splashed across both the front and back pages of newspapers right around the world. Something that the former Manchester City striker seemed to embrace last night during the fixture with Roma.
The boots clearly displayed the catchy headline `Why Always Me?`, that Balotelli first revealed on a t-shirt after scoring in City’s 6-1 win over United in 2011, as well as newspaper clippings referring to moments like his two-goal performance against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-finals.
The boots also contained Balotelli’s best known lines ‘Super Mario’ and ‘Bye Bye Germania’.
The boots didn’t help the Italian to get on the scoresheet as his team-mates came from behind twice to salvage a draw that leaves them 24 points behind table-toppers Juventus at almost the half-way point of the season.
