Mario Balotelli has suffered racial abuse throughout his whole career, just last season he received over 4,000 racist messages on Twitter and was even named as “Britain’s most abused player”, he has constantly been hounded my media and journalists for his behaviour, to more of an extent than almost any other player, and he’s been the butt of countless jokes. But we know he is so much more than that, from a foster child who said he felt “abandoned” he has risen into a truly great player and generous person. Today Mario turns 25 and we just want to wish him the happiest of birthdays and many, many fantastic years ahead! We support you Super Mario and wish you the best! Happy Birthday Mario Balotelli! | 12.08.2015
