Mario Balotteli I scored an incredible trick shot from behind the goal in pre-season training… before challenging some of the world’s best players to beat it.
The Italian star, 27, is currently without a club after his second one-year deal at Nice expired last month.
But the former Liverpool and Manchester City star has had a crack at finding a new home in a novel, typically “Super Mario” way.
Balotelli took to Instagram to show off a bizarre trick-shot, as he netted a barely-believable effort from a near-impossible angle.
Standing outside of a walled-pitch, the striker boots the ball up and over the sides before it bounces, spins and edges over the goal-line in ridiculous manner.
The ex-Inter and AC Milan star then challenged Marcelo, Neymar and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to have a go, along with Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and a host of other footballing stars.
Balotelli captioned his post, “Marcelo, brother, let’s see if you can do this”, before tagging a load of famous pals.
The clip has already racked up well over one million views on social media.
Earlier this month, Balotelli fuelled speculation over his future by failing to turn up to Patrick Vieira’s first training session as Nice boss.
Instead the Italian remained in his native Italy to play football with rapper pal Tekashi69.
