Italian striker caught smoking on the train to Fiorentina game.
Wherever Mario Balotelli goes, controversy is not far away. That remains the case even after the player’s move to AC Milan.
The Italian striker has been in fine form for the Italian giant since joining the club during the January transfer window.
Balotelli has hit seven goals in as many games for the San Siro side and looks set to become an important player for the Rossoneri.
But the player looks set to face his first disciplinary action by the club according to Tutto Mercato Web.
The Italian giants were reportedly travelling by train for their away fixture against Champions League qualification rivals Fiorentina.
Balotelli reportedly snuck away to the train’s toilets to enjoy a cheeky cigarette away from the eyes of the club’s coaching staff.
The striker failed to get away with his secret puff though as train guard immediately alerted AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani.
The Milan vice-president was reportedly far from impressed by the striker’s antics and Balotelli know looks set to face a fine from his new club.
Balotelli is no stranger to controversy and repeatedly hit the headlines during his time in England. The last straw for Manchester City was when the striker and his manager hit the headlines in January after a brawl following a stern tackle from Balotelli on City’s Scott Sinclair.
