Super brat, Balotelli tells critics to shut up




Seems the controversial international football star, Mario Balotelli does not take kindly to criticisms, especially from people he feels don’t know him enough to comment on his life.

The Liverpool striker hit out at his critics in a video posted on his Instagram account on Tuesday, telling them to “Shut up!”

Speaking directly to camera in the short clip, he says: “Do you know me? Did you ever talk to me, personally? Do you know what I’ve been through in my life? You just saw me play football on the pitch, so man, shut up!”

An accompanying caption read: “For those with an easy judge (sic) without knowing s*** about others. Good night #idowhatiwant-remember!”

The 24-year-old Italy international may have been responding to criticism of his performances since arriving at Anfield from AC Milan in a £16 million ($23.5 million, 22.1 million euros) deal last August.

Signed partly to offset the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Balotelli has scored only four goals in 20 appearances in all competitions and has found the net only once in the Premier League.
