Italian Striker Mario Balotelli was in the mood for love as he helped Manchester City take a five-point lead from Manchester United at the top of the Premier League after beat Blackburn Rovers 3-0.
|Raffaella, Ti Amo|
Mario Balotelli opened the scoring with half an hour gone at the Etihad Stadium and celebrated by revealing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words: ‘Raffaella Ti Amo’ — I love you, Raffaella. It was a message to his model girlfriend, Raffaella Fico.
A second goal, hammered in from close range by Sergio Aguero, made sure of the points before substitute Edin Dzeko headed in a third just after coming on, bad news for the fourth-choice forward Carlos Tevez, who is not yet fit and did not attend yesterday's walkover.
Talking about Mario, He even had her name stamped on his boot to emphasise his passion for the dark-haired 23-year-old beauty who is based in Naples.
The last time Balotelli sent a message by revealing his T-shirt it was during City’s sensational 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford late in October 2011, when the words read ‘Why Always Me?’.
He had hit that day’s headlines when it was revealed fireworks had been set off inside his house the previous night.
This is Super Mario!
