This eventually led to him being looked after by foster parents, Francesco and Silvia Balotelli – first only throughout the week, and then eventually full time after relations with his biological parents soured.He took the Balotelli name and began playing football from the age of 5 at his local parish team, Mompiano. A month later, Balotelli announced himself fully with two brilliant goals away to Juventus in the cup.Balotelli departed Inter in 2010 – as an unused substitute in their victorious Champions League final against Bayern Munich, no less – and moved to Manchester City.Aside from the myth and legend of Mario, Balotelli left City with a crucial contribution to their Premier League title win in 2012 – not least his double in the 6-1 win over Manchester United and assist to Sergio Aguero on the final day – but also with four red cards and plenty of controversy.In his final summer at Manchester City, Balotelli traveled to Euro 2012 to become Italy's first black player at a major international tournament. After another few, disjointed months at City, he then moved to Milan, where he scored 26 league goals in just 43 appearances.
