Mario Barwuah Balotelli is an Italian footballer who plays as a striker for Milan and the Italian national team. He joined Internazionale in 2007. Inter manager Roberto Mancini brought Balotelli into the first team, but when Mancini left, Balotelli's disciplinary record fell away. He had a strained relationship with new head coach José Mourinho and was suspended from Inter's first team after a number of disciplinary problems.
He came under criticism by Inter fans after he appeared on the Italian TV show Striscia la notizia, wearing an Milan jersey. This damaged the prospect of him having a long career at Inter, but he did make several appearances after that. With doubts over his career at Inter, former coach Roberto Mancini had since moved to Manchester City and decided to give Balotelli a fresh chance at a new club. He joined Manchester City in August 2010, where his performances and off-field activities have continued to be enigmatic and unpredictable. He is nicknamed Super Mario.
