Mario Balotelli has seen his fair share of struggles on-the-pitch over the last few years. He's struggled mightily at Liverpool and doesn't appear to have much of a future at the club. However, that hasn't seemed to hurt his off-the-pitch appeal whatsoever.
The apparel company Puma, in which Balotelli has an endorsement deal with, has designed a new line of kids boots in his likeness.

They are complete with his famous "Why Always Me?" slogan and their own Balotelli-style mohawk on the back. What better way to teach your child the beautiful game than to introduce them to Balotelli's antics?
Oh that's not all! Not only are there boots, but they've always come up with a new football with a mohawk as well.
We're not scientists, but it's hard to see how this ball would be very aerodynamic when flying through the air. Maybe it doesn't matter when you can have A MOHAWK ON A FOOTBALL!
