Manchester City‘s Italian striker Mario Balotelli is a special breed and he proved it again last night when playing against the LA Galaxy at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

You might remember seeing the backheel penalty from the UAE’s Thiyab Awana last week. Now Mario Balotelli tried to backheel a shot in open play against the LA Galaxy into goal while having a great chance. He missed and coach Roberto Mancini immediately took him off for disciplinary reasons, one can even see the two arguing over the incidence.

Here the link to the video clip
