City’s £22m forward telling it like it is


A particularly amusing story has been circulating around Greater Manchester Police stations since Mario Balotelli wrecked his custom-kitted Audi R8 over the Bank Holiday weekend.

On arriving at the scene of the crash, officers went through the standard procedure of taking names, statements and administering a breathlyser test, which all passed without a hitch.

However, on giving Balotelli a quick pat down, police quickly found £5,000 hanging out of his back pocket.

Smelling something fishy, curious coppers asked the 20-year-old what he was doing driving around with that sort of wedge tucked into his jeans. A deadpan Balotelli simply replied:

Because I am rich.

Amazing. We’ve got a feeling Mario’s stay in Manchester will singlehandedly provide enough material to keep The Spoiler running for another three years.
