Mario Balotelli Scores Brilliant Scissor Kick, Then Uses iPhone To Upload Celebration To Instagram

"Every time I do anything it creates worldwide news." - Mario Balotelli on his Instagram live following Marseille's 2-0 win against Saint-Etienne on Sunday night.

You can say that again, Mario.

The often controversial character has once again found the headlines this morning, but this time it's for all the right reasons.

Balotelli, who joined Marseille in the January transfer window, scored an incredible 'scissor kick' against Saint-Etienne last night and to celebrate, the Italian whipped out his trusty iPhone to record a video for his Instagram story.

Now this is how you celebrate. Can we also mention his technique to open the scoring. Wow!

Balotelli has scored four in his opening six games for Ligue 1 side Marseille, including a goal last month in a 2-0 win over Amiens.

In another brilliant celebration, the former Manchester City and Liverpool man mocked teammate Florian Thauvin, who seemed to get injured in the opening goal.

In terms of celebrations, Balotelli has produced time and time again, but this moment against Manchester United back in 2011 will always come out on top.

Mario stunned Old Trafford into silence when he opened the scoring in a 6-1 win over Manchester United, but his iconic celebration will ultimately down in memory as one of the greatest - "Why always me?"

It was a mauling from start to finish, with goals from Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Edin Dzeko (2) and Mario Balotelli (2) inflicting United's worst home defeat since February 1955.

It also meant that City went five point clear at the top of the Premier League ladder.

Balotelli revealed he had been talked about frequently by the English press for a long period during an interview with TIME.

"The truth is that I do not know why I always did. I made that shirt because at that time it was all about me - people were always talking about me."

When are people not talking about you, Mario?
