Despite not finding the net with the regularity that the Liverpool faithful would have liked, Mario Balotelli has managed to keep himself in the spotlight since his 16 million Euro move to Merseyside with a couple of antics. This time, Mario Balotelli is in trouble with the English FA over an Instagram post which the FA considers to be racist.
Mario Balotelli put up this picture on Instagram yesterday.
Despite the picture saying “Don’t be racist”, The English FA believes that the photo is offensive to Judaism and are set to investigate the Italian international who has apologized and taken down the picture. Liverpool have also confirmed that they would speak to the former Manchester City forward.
Balotelli sent out this tweet in apology for his actions
I apologize if I’ve offended anyone. The post was meant to be anti-racist with humour. I now understand that (…) pic.twitter.com/UlNeNlEz9M
