Etihad Stadium striker in crazy news shocker!
MADCAP footballer Mario Balotelli has been banned from returning to his £3million mansion … by his landlord who wants compensation for a trail of damage.
The volatile Manchester City striker is still living in a city-centre hotel more than three months after a firework was let off in a bathroom at his £2,000-a-week rented Cheshire house.
And the Italian, 21, is now in a stand-off with the landlord, who won’t let him back in until he settles a damages bill running to tens of thousands of pounds.
The sum includes fire damage and the wrecking of expensive dining room chairs.

You can hardly blame the landlord for his reticence. Given that Mario Balotelli had set the mansion on fire after he let off £1500 worth of fireworks go off in the bathroom, leading to a blaze that gutted the lower floors of the £3m mansion.
Perhaps the City man can just buy the mansion outright? Then he can go to town on the place!
