Mario Balotelli thought it was funny to urinate on his Inter Milan teammates’ boots when he was a teenager.
Brazilian Kerlon – he of the seal dribble who did not play a single Serie A game for Inter – has revealed as much to ESPN Brazil after arriving back in his homeland.
“Balotelli is a very nice guy and an extraordinary person, but he did some unbelievable things off the pitch,” said Kerlon.
“He had a habit of arriving at training before anyone else and peeing on all the players’ boots…it was very funny.
“I’ve never seen a kid of 18 years do it, and no feel sorry for any of it, even to Julio Cesar and Maicon.”
Kerlon is not the first to reveal Balotelli’s penchant for relieving himself here, there and everywhere, with Marco Pedretti previously saying in a book about the striker:
“He liked to mess about like he does now, but he was a child back then. He was constantly a real pain in the neck and would pull pranks all the time. Bad ones, sometimes.
“It’s true that he would pee on our bags containing our clean clothes and he would pee on people too.”
