Milan VP Calls Balotelli A Nigger

If Mario Balotelli thought he had found a bosom for a pillow at AC Milan he has surely been rudely awoken.

The former Manchester City striker has barely been back in his home country for a week, and already he is at the heart of a racism storm.

Accustomed to racist abuse from the opposition, this time, Super Mario is the victim of a patronising insult from the heart of his own club.

AC Milan’s vice-president and brother of the club’s owner, Paolo Berlusconi, has been recorded calling Balotelli “the family’s little nigger.”

Speaking at a rally for former Italian prime-minister Silvio Berlusconi’s right-wing People of Freedom Party, the Neanderthal-like Milan VP said:  "OK, we are all off to see the family's little nigger. He's a crazy head. All the young ladies are invited as well – you can even have a chance to meet the president [Silvio Berlusconi]."

The comments were recorded and the video was released on the website of newspaper La Repubblica.

Recently, Balotelli’s new Milan team-mate, Kevin-Prince Boateng, stormed off the field after being racially abused by fans of a tiny Italian club, Pro Patria.

Boateng was given the backing of Milan’s hierarchy, but their support was obviously false, considering Paolo Berlusconi’s own foul mouth.

Balotelli is no fool, and is surely aware of the racism that still exists in Italy. But the last thing he would have expected was to suffer the indignity of racist abuse from within his own club.
