He set off fireworks in his home and threw training darts at a team-mate, but Mario Balotelli’s latest misdemeanour might just be the craziest.
Former Inter Milan midfielder Kerlon, who played with Balotelli from 2008 to 2010, has revealed that the Italian striker would prank team-mates by urinating on their boots.
According to Kerlon, Balotelli would even include the respected Julio Cesar and Maicon among his list of unfortunate targets.

“He had a habit of arriving at training before anyone else and peeing on all the players’ boots… it was very funny.”
Kerlon’s revelations add to the list of bizarre antics from the Italian forward.
In 2011 he set off fireworks in his Cheshire home, causing £400,000 worth of damage.
In the same year Balotelli made headlines for throwing darts at a Manchester City youth team player.
His final season at City was marred by a training ground bust-up with then-City manager Roberto Mancini.
Balotelli showed no remorse for his unhygienic behaviour, according to Kerlon.
“I’ve never seen a kid of 18 years do it, and not feel sorry for any of it, even to Julio Cesar and Maicon.”
Maybe he just didn’t know where the toilets were?
Of all of Balotelli's crazy antics, where does this one rank?
