Mario Balotelli gets nutmegged by freestyler Soufiane Touzani

Mario Balotelli has become something of a laughing stock in recent years.

From that training ground scrap with Roberto Mancini at Manchester City to failing to live up to the hype at Liverpool, the Italian striker’s tenure in England has been a failure to say the least.

Currently on loan at AC Milan, things don’t look as if they have improved for Balotelli.

The Italian featured in a video with freestyler Soufiane Touzani in which he has one objective - to avoid the painful embarrassment of being nutmegged.

He even talks the talk at the beginning: “Trust me… 100% he doesn’t get me,” Balotelli says.

Shame the forward doesn’t walk the walk.

Touzani nutmegs the 25-year-old in the blink of an eye, to which Balotelli can do nothing but fall to the floor.

Watch the video:


Balotelli isn’t Touzani’s only scalp. The YouTuber, who boasts nearly 80,000 subscribers, has a video on his channel showing former Real Madrid star Sami Khedira succumbing to a nutmeg.

Balotelli is on loan at the Italian club until the end of the season but it’s not clear whether he has a future at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.

Lack of goals

After last season’s efforts, when the former City striker scored once in 16 league games, he was loaned out by Brendan Rodgers in a bid to regain form.

Considering Liverpool’s lack of talent at the striker position, you have to imagine they will sign a forward in the summer if they aren’t willing to give Balotelli another chance to justify his £16m transfer fee.

For the Premier League’s sake, let's hope Klopp affords Balotelli another opportunity. Combining the maverick German with the combustible Balotelli would make for incredible viewing.
