Being part of a team that has just upset Champions Barcelona should bring just about any team together
Balotelli connects with another shot…poorly
Apparently not, if Inter Milan are anything to go by!
The main point of contention was substitute Mario Balotelli. Inter Milan’s 19 year-old' CTR360 wearer' threw his shirt to the floor in a firey gesture of frustration at the amount of abuse he’d endured from the fans since coming on for Diego Milito in the 70th minute.
The fans, apparently not happy with being just 3-1 up against Barca, taunted the young marksman for his lack of desire to chase down the ball, spurning his chances and other Berbatov-like behaviour.
It wasn’t just the fans who were upset at Balotelli though, Superfly II wearer Zlatan Ibrahimovic reported that in the tunnel he saw (stand-up guy, all-around good sportsman)' Marco Materazzi' berate' Balotelli in the tunnel towards the dressing room.
Zlatan (always good for a great quote) said of the incident:
“I saw that Materazzi was attacking him in the players’ tunnel and I’ve never seen anything like it,”
“If I were him, I’d have left Mario alone, but Materazzi was attacking him and I was stunned. If Materazzi had attacked me like that, I would’ve decked him in a second!
“Materazzi was causing all sorts of trouble and in the Barcelona locker room we were amazed, all talking about it. A player should be proud after a win, not chase down a 19-year-old to berate him.”'
