Mario Balotelli got revenge on Besiktas manager with cheeky goal celebration

Super Mario, never change!

There aren't many footballers quite like Mario Balotelli.

The Italian maverick is one the sport's real characters and it's a shame that he's no longer plying his trade in one of Europe's top five leagues.

Balotelli is still only 31 years of age, but is now with Adana Demirspor in Turkey after brief spells at both Brescia and Monza.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool man took five games to net his first goal for the Turkish club, the fiery forward netting in a 3-1 victory over Caykur Rizespor last weekend.

That strike appears to have awoken the beast inside Balotelli, because he found the back of the net for a second time in Adana Demirspor's colours on Tuesday evening after coming on as a substitute.

It was an absolute stunner as well.

With his team trailing 3-1 to Besiktas, Baltoelli took aim from distance and his powerful, dipping effort absolutely flew past Ersin Destano─člu in the home side's goal.

And seconds after getting Adana Demirspor back into the game in style, he took the opportunity to get revenge on Besiktas manager, Sergen Yalcin.

Back in 2013, Yalcin said in an interview that the striker had "no brain"  after his now infamous miss versus LA Galaxy, so Balotelli decided to run over to him and produce an iconic celebration.

We're pleased to report that Super Mario is at it again...

You just love to see it.

Balotelli was booked for his provocative celebration, but that will almost certainly not bother him one bit.

What will make the Italian even happier is the fact that his wonder-goal was the start of an epic comeback by Adana Demirspor.

In the seventh-minute of stoppage-time, ex-Middlesbrough striker Britt Assombalonga netted a dramatic equaliser on Besiktas' home patch.

It was certainly an eventful night at Vodafone Park on Tuesday...
