Balotelli, AC Milan, Poli,

I am not quite sure if this video clip taken of AC Milan training on Thursday was in anyway malice on the part of striker Mario Balotelli when he hits Andrea Poli from behind, but it reminded me of the kind of thing we used to do with our friends at school.

So I am going to take it in the context of Mario just having a little fun, anyway watch the video and decide for yourself.

Balotelli was unimpressive midweek against PSV, but look for some excitement tonight as Milan travel to Hellas Verona for the season opener a team that is well known for their racist behaviour.

Let’s just hope that Super Mario keeps his cool and the fans do not ruin what should be an exciting match.
