PIC: Even Mario Balotelli thinks this fan’s tattoo is a bit much

Tom Victor

Mario Balotelli’s honesty is what sets him apart from a lot of other footballers.

He’s never been one to sugar-coat things, and this has landed him in trouble from time to time, but it’s part of why we love him.

One fan decided to show this love by getting a tattoo of the Italy striker’s name and number on his back, and it somehow made its way to Milan loanee Balotelli.

Rather than take the compliment and keep his feelings to himself, the 25-year-old asked the fan in an Instagram post: ‘don’t you think it is a bit crazy’.

Never change, Mario.
