AC Milan new boy Mario Balotelli has already found himself the victim of a nasty racial slur – from the brother of the club president.
Paolo Berlusconi, brother of former Italian prime minister Silvio, called the former Manchester City striker “the family’s little n****r” during a political rally for Silvio’s People of Freedom party.
Rounding up his speech, Berlusconi said: “I’ve finished. Right we are all off to see the family’s little n****r. He’s a madhead. All the young ladies are invited as well – you can even have a chance to meet the president (Silvio Berlusconi).”
His comments were greeted by laughter from the crowd.
