Mario Balotelli joined Liverpool from AC Milan on Monday. Here we look at five moments of madness from the controversial Italian striker during his last stint in the English Premier League with Manchester City
Bad first impression: Just days after signing for City, Balotelli hits the headlines after crashing his Audi R8 en route to the club's training ground. Balotelli is found to be carrying £5,000 in cash at the time of the accident and when police ask why, he reportedly replies: "Because I am rich".
Dart shame: Balotelli once again showed his lack of maturity and poor judgement when it emerged he threw darts at Manchester City youth team players through a training ground window in March 2011. No one was hurt in the incident and he escaped punishment.
