Mario Balotelli Celebrates Goal Scored By Teammate By Roundhouse Kicking Him In The Head

Mario Balotelli decided to join in Adana Demirspor's goal celebrations on Tuesday night by roundhouse kicking teammate Yunus Akgun in the head.

The former Manchester City and Inter Milan striker, who signed for the newly-promoted Super Lig side in July, has enjoyed a decent start to life in Turkey, scoring six goals in 17 league appearances.

Known for his on and off the field antics, Balotelli is often in the headlines and well, a moment during the club's most recent win against Galatasaray has got people talking again.

Shortly after Yunus Akgun netted against Fatih Terim's side inside the New Adana Stadium on Tuesday, the Italian was casually walking next to the goalscorer when, out of nowhere, he produced an acrobatic kick.

The kick brushed Akgun's head and Balotelli proceeded to walk away like nothing had even happened. Why always me?

Here is that bizarre moment below.

Balotelli hit the headlines again back in August, when he punched an Adana Demirspor teammate in frustration after being substituted early on in the second-half.

At the time, Demirspor were desperate to secure their first win of the season against Konyaspor and with the scoreline still at 0-0, manager Samet Aybaba decided to shake things up by bringing the Italian forward off.

Balotelli took his seat on the bench and threw his shinpads down while shouting at the bench. He then slammed his feet to the ground before appearing to strike the player sat to his right.

In an interview with SPORTbible, former teammate Micah Richards opened up about Balotelli's antics at Manchester City.

"He actually came to my house a couple of weeks before the fireworks incident and he set some off again in my house," Richards said.

"I was like 'you know you can't do this? What's going through your mind?'. He just thinks everything is funny. That's why I like him so much. He doesn't take life too seriously."
