Balotelli's attempts to flirt on Instagram fail spectacularly
It's just not happening for Mario Balotelli, is it?
Left to gather splinters on his bum as he continues to warm the Liverpool bench, the Italian striker has been trying his luck with two Icelandic ladies on Instagram - but to no avail.
His attempt to woo one lass were exposed on Twitter by her boyfriend:
In case you don't read Icelandic, Jonatan's message reads: "The moment Balotelli tries to steal your girlfriend."
To his credit, Jonatan could see the funny side of a (in)famous footballer hitting on his significant other.
That failure didn't deter Balotelli, however, as he went after another Scandinavian beauty.
While Margaret Iris didn't have someone like Jonatan to put her exchange with the former Manchester City footballer online, she did contact Icelandic football website Fotbolti.net and hand over a screenshot of her conversation to them.
Guess Balotelli's brags about being with another glamour model girlfriend after splitting with fiancee Fanny Neguesha in September weren't really true or lasting after all.
