Manchester City star Mario Balotelli has surrendered a cover shoot to Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker.

The Sunday Mirror says Balotelli was asked to do a fashion shoot for monthly magazine FHM after ­capturing the ­imagination of the ­British ­public with his crazy antics on and off the pitch.

Balotelli had a change of heart after initially turning down the offer, but City’s busy schedule in both the Premier League and Europa League meant he was ­unable to f­inalise a date to become a model for the day.

After missing out on bad-boy Balotelli, FHM turned to Spurs’ fresh-faced midfielder Parker.
