Man City striker Balotelli completely thrashed on PlayStation by local barber

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has been shown up by his local barber.

The Mirror reports the City teenager was bragging in his local barber shop about how good he was at Pro ­Evolution Soccer to all who would listen.

While applying the final touches to his latest trademark Mohawk, the barber told Balotelli he was a dab hand at the game too.

To his surprise the young Italian ­promptly challenged him to a game at his city centre pad.

It was a challenge that he could not resist.

And he must have thought he had bitten off more than he could chew, when he was hammered 4-1 by his host, who played as Barcelona against Inter Milan.

The second game ended 4-4, with Inter winning on penalties. But in the decider, Balotelli was blown away 5-1.
