Marseille striker Mario Balotelli scored the winner in a 1-0 home victory against Nice on Sunday and he celebrated in some style.
The Italian star lined up against his former club for the first time since leaving for the Orange Velodrome in January, after falling out with French head coach Patrick Viera.
The two men played together briefly at Manchester City and it was hoped that they would enjoy success together in Nice, but Balotelli’s contract was terminated after he was banished from training by Viera.
