El Shaarawy not impressed with ‘Super Mario’s’ antics.
AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been up to his usual tricks as he jokingly irritates his team-mates during their official team photo shoot.
The 23-year-old will be focused on helping his side to a win over rivals Napoli at San Siro on Sunday night, but there was time on Friday for him to disrupt proceedings as he attempted to ruffle a few hairstyles during the shoot.
While the likes of Nigel De Jong and Robinho saw the funny side of things, Stephan El Shaarawy wasn’t particularly impressed at his compatriot’s antics.
Nevertheless, despite Balotelli’s best efforts the photo was eventually taken with all parties happy and now attention will again switch to matters on the pitch.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side will hope to bridge the early gap between themselves and their title rivals, and he will be boosted by the return of Ignazio Abate, Andrea Poli and M’Baye Niang ahead of the meeting with Rafa Benitez’s side.
