Mario Balotelli cheeks policeman who questions his wad of cash
Man City star tells it like it is
Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli has hit the headlines for good and bad reasons since arriving in England. He did score on his debut for Citeh, but he also managed to total his Audi R8 within a fortnight of his £22 million move from Inter Milan.
Now it emerges that a combination of his limited English and world-renowned ego resulted in some straight-talking to cops at the scene of his smash. The Mirror reports that after being breathalysed, officers demanded to know why he had £5,000 in cash in his back pocket.
Mario’s reply was short and to the point. He allegedly said: “Because I am rich.”
