On Saturday, the A.C. Milan star was caught smoking a cigarette in the toilet of a train as he and his teammates were traveling for a match against ACF Fiorentina. You'd think Italy would be the one place left on the planet where it would be OK to smoke on a train, but you would be wrong.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the senior guard on the train informed Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani, who was travelling with the team, saying: ‘Maybe you have to pull Balotelli’s ears, because he was smoking in the toilet.’
Galliani also said the team will likely fine Balotelli. This is not the first bit of train tomfoolery for Balotelli, though. Earlier in the week he was photographed sleeping on the luggage racks above the seats with fellow teammates.
Galliani might have been simmering since the event since he was later seen getting into a heated shouting match and had to be separated from fans during the Fiorentina match, which ended in a draw after Milan jumped out to a 2-0 lead.
