The Liverpool striker, who played a key role in Manchester City’s 6-1 win at Old Trafford three years ago, revelled in the Red Devils’ second-half collapse on Twitter
Mario Balotelli has taunted Manchester United following Sunday’s shock 5-3 loss to newly-promoted Leicester City.
Robin van Persie and Angel Di Maria gave United a 2-0 lead inside 16 minutes, with Ander Herrera restoring the margin just before the hour-mark.
However, goals from David Nugent, from the penalty-spot, and Esteban Cambiasso saw Leicester fight back before Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa’s second claimed a stunning victory.
United’s collapse marked the first time in Premier League history they have seen a two-goal lead slip on the way to losing a game.
And Balotelli, who recently joined Liverpool and includes Manchester City among his former sides, took to Twitter to broadcast his post-match reaction soon after the final whistle.
Man utd … LOL

Unfortunately, in response, the striker received a barrage of racist abuse from a number of Twitter users. Others, in defence of Balotelli, reported a number of the messages to police.
