Mario Balotelli Brilliantly Mocks Florian Thauvin In Goal Celebration
Mario Balotelli has certainly left the tumultuous end of his time at Nice behind him already and is enjoying another resurgence at Marseille and now he's even using goal celebrations to mock his teammates.
It's not controversial to say that wherever Mario Balotelli has gone some sort of trouble seems to have followed him, whether it's a slew of parking tickets, fireworks in his kitchen, fireworks on the pitch, not getting on with teammates or management or a lack of goals, it's always something with Mario.
After tricky spells with Liverpool and back with AC Milan he seemed to actually be back to where we'd expect for Nice.
In two seasons with the Ligue 1 side he scored 43 goals in 66 games, a pretty good return, and though there was a few red cards in the mix too he generally did well.
Last summer he looked likely to leave Nice and join their rivals Marseille but it took till January, a falling out with Patrick Vieira and no goals in 10 games for it to happen.
Now playing at the Stade Velodrome, Balotelli has scored three in his opening four games including on Saturday in a 2-0 win over Amiens.
The striker for once celebrated his goal by mocking teammate Florian Thauvin who seemed to get injured in the opening goal:

Despite enjoying his start to life at the new club he did nearly get himself in the bad books of the Marseille fans in midweek when he was watching the Champions League.
After watching PSG beat Manchester United he took to Twitter to mock United, having been a former Manchester City player, before quickly deleting the tweet:
The move could have been seen by some Marseille fans as favouring PSG so he made sure he stuck his colours firmly to the mast:
Never change Mario!
