Wantaway Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli appears to have sunk to new lows in a bid to engineer a move back to Italian football.
When interviewed before Citys final Europa League group game away at Juventus, Balotelli made crude comments about manager Roberto Mancini's genitalia.
Balotelli was being questioned about his disciplinary issues of late and how they affected his relationship with his manager, when he replied, "I aint being funny bruv but I've seen his d*ck and it aint nothing".
Bemused journalists who naturally struggled to find the relevance in the strikers comments probed for an explanation and he quipped, "If a fella with a Ford Fiesta tells you how to drive your Ferrari, are you going to listen?".
After being pushed to further explain, Balotelli simply laughed and said, "If you still don't get it, I aint explaining anymore dya get me".
City have yet comment on the bizarre interview.
