It’s been almost a month since Mario Balotelli left these shores and it’s fair to say he is missed.
He may have had a pretty poor season at the Manchester City, scoring just one Premier League goal, but he was undeniably one of the biggest characters to ever play in the Premier League.
He is now back in Italy with AC Milan, where he appears to have found his scoring touch once again and is beginning to look like the player who lit up Euro 2012 once more.
He is cup tied for the remainder of AC Milan’s Champions League campaign, but that didn’t stop the young forward from managing plenty of air-time during his new sides 2-0 triumph over Barcelona on Wednesday evening.
The camera consistently cut away to Super Mario during the evening, looking happier than he ever looked in the sky blue of Manchester City.
It may have had something to do with the fact he was chatting up an attractive woman, but Balotelli looked to be enjoying himself in a way not seen before.
Even when he’s not playing, he remains the focus of attention, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi a side show for the camera’s who focused on Balotelli’s jubilant celebrations.
Let’s hope he keeps that smile on his face and starts to look the player everyone hopes he will be!
