MANCHESTER City striker Mario Balotelli has been stitched up like a kipper by his teammates – after a bag full of fish was hidden in his car.
As revenge for the Italian striker’s ongoing pranks, his teammates hid a sportsbag packed with kippers in his beloved £150,000 Maserati car.
The player then left for his team’s US tour before finding it two weeks later – and now his car could be a write-off due to the fishy pong of the interiors.
A source said: “The smell nearly made him sick. It was revolting.
“There were flies in the car and the leather seats in the back had rotting fish all over them.”
