Jackass: Karate Kicks Himself and his Team Out of Europe
A moment of madness in the Europa League cost, not just himself, but his team as well. In the second leg of a knockout match against Dynamo Kiev, Balotelli went absolutely berserk and landed a reckless karate kick to the chest of Goran Popov, promptly seeing a red card for his actions just before halftime. City subsequently couldn't muster anything in attack in the second half with 10 men, and were bounced from Europe. Did we mention Manchester City were already facing a two-goal first-leg deficit, and Balotelli had missed two early chances in the match? It was also City's second to last chance of the season to win any major hardware since 1976. Bad Mario.
