When it comes to headlines and newspaper inches, no player has received more attention this season than Mario Balotelli; Manchester City’s controversial Italian striker. Whether you think he’s a footballing genius or a liability, his antics on and off the field have made him one of the most talked about players in English football.

The following infographic looks at Balotelli’s career in the Premier League to date, covering his arrival at Manchester City right through to his sending off against Arsenal towards the end of the English season and his manager, Roberto Mancini, suggesting he could be sold to another club in the summer months.

Rather fittingly entitled ‘Mario Balotelli – The Good, The Bad & The Stupid’, the infographic doesn’t just look at the controversy around the player on the pitch, but it also looks at his antics away from football (including the stories that have seen him grab the headlines in 2011 and 2012), as well as the good side of Balotelli; the goals, the performances and the ‘Why Always Me?’.

Love him or hate him, Balotelli has become one of the biggest talking points in English football and divides opinion all over the world. Check out our exclusive infographic and make up your own mind! Would you pick the Italian for your team? Or would you cash in and sell the man football loves to hate…
