MANCHESTER City’s headline-hogging striker Mario Balotelli was thrown out of Manchester’s Trafford Centre by security.
But what could have sparked the unpredictable player’s early exit, I hear you ask…
Had he eaten the pic ‘n’ mix before weighing his bag?
Did he throw lit fireworks at passers-by?
Had he karate chopped a security guard before revealed he was wearing a ‘Why always me?’ pair of underpants?
Was he riding a greased pig bareback through the precinct?
No, dear reader – he refused to take down the hood on his top, which he was wearing to avoid being noticed.
A Trafford Centre spokesman said: “A customer was approached by security staff and advised that wearing a hooded top covering the head is against centre policy.
“The customer was Italian and native Italian-speaking staff were dispatched to converse with the customer.”
Pfff, goods over hoods, Mario, goods over hoods.
