Rome : Italian striker Mario Balotelli was made the scapegoat by the fans for Italy’s ouster from the FIFA World Cup in the group stages and there could be more trouble for the former Manchester City forward after he was pictured smoking while holidaying in Miami.
Balotelli, who plies his trade with AC Milan, was only last year fined by the Italian club for trying to smoke on a train.
Balotelli, who is on a holiday with fiancé Fanny Neguesha was caught smoking on his hotel balcony Sunday.
Balotelli earlier posted a picture of himself with the UFC World Championship belt, on his Instagram account. He previously claimed that if not for football, he would have become a mixed martial arts fighter.
Later, he was recently spotted strolling along a Miami beach with his fiancée Fanny Neguesha, as they both flaunted their perfectly chiseled frames.
While the 23-year-old football star walked without his shirt, the gorgeous Belgian model displayed her long pins and a toned waist in white shorts and cropped knotted up shirt with her locks loose around her shoulders, the Mirror reported.
The couple, who had been going out since October, got engaged only in June on Neguesha 23rd birthday, after which the footie ace had declared the news with a snap of the ring and the location of the proposal, writing alongside “she said yes”. Balotelli had earlier mentioned that he could spend his whole life with the beauty, who had so easily synchronized with his life.
