Italian international has a talent for basketball too.
AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been recorded showing off his basketball skills as part of the club’s pre-season schedule in the USA.
The Rossoneri are set to face the Los Angeles Galaxy in their final game of the International Champions Cup in the States, as they continue their preparations for the new season.
The Serie A giants also have a Champions League qualifier to prepare for with their opponents not yet known, but Balotelli has taken time off of the the pre-season training regime to display his basketball skills.
The 23-year-old is expected to play a major part in Milan’s season as he further establishes himself as one of the best players in world football ahead of the World Cup in Brazil next year.
However, judging from this video he would have no problem in switching the football for a basketball as he attacks the basket and throws down the dunk.
