Last week, before Mario Balotelli burned up his house with fireworks and scored the first two goals in Man City's 6-1 win over Man United, he gave a taste of his effortless accuracy and penchant for destruction while walking off the training pitch.
When a stray ball rolled towards Mario's feet, he kicked it up and, without taking aim, chipped it at a camera mounted high above the pitch. It was a direct hit that didn't even faze Mario as he kept trudging along, confident in the knowledge that in the coming days he had bigger fish to fry. Er, houses to burn.
