MANCHESTER City striker Mario Balotelli has been shortlisted for an award by heavy metal magazine Kerrang!
The footballer is up for Hero Of The Year at the K! Awards – against Ronnie Radke of Falling in Reverse, M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars and Rou Reynolds of Enter Shikari.
“Much is made of how fun and debauched the Kerrang! awards are,” said James McMahon, the magazine’s editor.
Mario should fit right in then.
