Over in beautiful Italy, Mario Balotelli is a rather controversial figure โ€” a bit like Marmite/Ashley Cole, they either love him, or hate him. Although, in most cases, they seem to hate him. Even his own fans.

It's a shame really, because he looks like a great prospect.

Anyway, Totti โ€” who may yet unretire himself for the World Cup โ€” certainly made his feelings known in the great Marmite/Cole debate when Roma travelled to Inter. How? By ignoring the ball, and introducing Balotelli's leg to his shooting kick. Ouch.
