While Italy are emerging as one of the favourites for Euro 2016, Mario Balotelli is sulking at home after missing out on Antonio Conte’s squad.
Yeah, like hell he is! The unwanted Liverpool striker is spending his summer in one of the most exotic holiday destinations you could ever see.
Balotelli uploaded this Instagram picture earlier this week, of his extraordinary private recluse with the rather appropriate hashtag of “paradise”.
It looks as though the Italian is chilling in the middle of the desert, or that Skywalker ranch has been given a revamp ahead of Star Wars XIII.
Wherever he is, as long as it is a million miles away from Anfield, I’m happy!
