Classic Mario Balotelli: Ex-Liverpool and Manchester City striker scores late Nice winner, gets booked and then sent off five minutes later!

3 Oct

Mario Balotelli is the gift that keeps on giving.

The former Liverpool and Manchester City striker – now at Ligue 1 side Nice – scored a late goal to give his side a 2-1 victory over Lorient. But that was just the start.

He celebrated by taking his shirt off – a cheap 87th minute booking. Then in the second minute of added time, the Italian was shown a second yellow card. Classic Balotelli.

But his goal was a worthy match winner. The 26-year-old receives the ball in the box, takes a touch, drops his shoulder and comes inside before curling the ball in the far corner – his talent is undoubted.

He now has six goals in five appearances this term.

See his latest effort and two yellow cards, below…
