The on-loan Liverpool man was gracious with an admirer who inked the star’s name and number on his back, but he admitted the move was rather outlandish
It takes a lot to leave AC Milan forward Mario Balotelli shocked, given his past track record of mischief and misdemeanours.
But one especially dedicated fan may have achieved the impossible and left the exuberant Italian almost speechless.
Balotelli took to his Instagram account to publish a photo received from the admirer, who had decided to make his support permanent.
Across the unnamed fan’s back, Balotelli 45 is daubed in a new tattoo, leaving the on-loan Liverpool striker a little bemused.
@haza3f THANK YOU for the support but don’t you think is a bit crazy?

“Thanks for the support, but don’t you think this is a bit crazy?” he asks, a very fair question.
If even Mario Balotelli thinks you have gone too far, it might be time to take a step back and evaluate life a little more carefully.
