Mario Balotelli’s career may be in shambles, as one of the most talented young forwards in the world languishes alongside the teens that make up Liverpool’s reserve team as the club desperately searches for some sucker to offload him on, but hey, at least he still does funny things from time to time.


The latest example of Mario being Mario comes in the form of these pictures of English newlyweds, Vicky and David O’Leary:

The Liverpool Echo has the backstory:


The Reds misfit posed with Vicky and David O’Leary, both big Liverpool FC fans, and their bridesmaids as they had their wedding photos taken outside The Vincent Hotel on Lord Street on Sunday afternoon.

Adam Johns, who was snapping Mr and Mrs O’Leary’s wedding photos, asked the Italian forward if he would have a photo with the happy couple when they spotted him outside the hotel, and he kindly agreed.

Adam said: “The couple said he was really nice and friendly, and more than happy to have photos taken with them, which made their day with them being such big Reds fans.

“It was the icing on the cake.”

A cute gesture, certainly, but we can’t help but worry that the Italian forward very well might appear in more impromptu wedding photoshoots than top-level soccer matches this season.
