Mario Balotelli is an exciting young striker who signed for Manchester City in August 2010. A technically skilful player, with great pace and an eye for goal, he can play anywhere across the front line. Mario had a mixed start to his City career, scoring on his debut in a Europa League tie with Timisoara and then suffering an injury which kept him out until September. Thereafter he was in and out of the side, but gained an FA Cup winners? medal as a member of the team that defeated Stoke in the Wembley final. Mario came to fame with Inter Milan, helping the Italian giants win three successive Serie A titles and scoring at a high goals-per-game ratio before his move to Eastlands. He won his first full cap for Italy against Ivory Coast in August 2010. © 2011 - PFA Player Profiles
