Balotelli Recreates His Famous 2012 Celebration

The man we like to tag as the king of social is at it again, Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli spent the international break racking up Instagram posts.

The troubled striker was left out of Antonio Conte's Italy squad for the Euro qualifier against Bulgaria and the friendly against England.

Super Mario spent this week reminiscing on the past and decided to go back to 2012... by recreating his famous goal celebration at the Euros.

The celebration which was acted out in 2012, came after Balotelli scored for the Azzurri against Germany in a European Championship semi-final - and we saw him whip off his shirt, before striking a pose to show off his muscular frame.

The striker posted the picture on Tuesday night a few hours before Italy faced England and it seemed like it was almost a little reminder to who he was supporting, or perhaps serving a reminder of what he can do.

In the picture, Balotelli appears to be sporting a new tattoo on his pectoral, as well as a far less crazy hairstyle.

The caption of the Instagram picture was "Old euro cup pose LOADING...." 

Do you think Balotelli is becoming the new king of Instagram?
