Mario Balotelli is a pretty controversial guy. He gets parking tickets, wears stupid hats, has an inflated opinion of himself, and occasionally accidentally hangs out with mobsters.

So when he tried to backheel a goal in against the Galaxy yesterday, people got a little annoyed, accusing him of being disrespectful of his opponents and/or not taking the preseason friendly seriously. One of those people was Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, who immediately yanked his ass.

But really, people? Really? You were expecting common sense from Mario Balotelli? We wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to wear soup as a hat. At least this was something related to football.
