Mario Balotelli was left with egg on his face -- and his car -- after some mischievous Manchester United fans egged his Bentley.
The Manchester City star was eating in a city restaurant after last weekend's controversial victory over Tottenham, but Balotelli made the fateful mistake of parking his car next to a well known Man United bar.
"Loads of fans were in there watching the later Arsenal game and they must have come out and seen his car," one witness said.
"They pelted his roof with eggs. The yolk was dripping down all one side. It was pretty disgusting. I don't know where they got their eggs from, but there is a Sainsbury's just yards away."
He added: "I'm not sure if Mario saw them do it but he came rushing out of the restaurant and moved the car into the multi-storey."
At least he had no shortage of time to clean down his Bentley, given his four-game suspension.
