Maybe Mario Balotelli has always been famous for the controversial remarks thrown by other players over him, but this is probably be the first time he himself changed the role and mocked Manchester United’s shocking defeat to newly promoted league side Leicester City. The loss was not the ordinary one perhaps one of the devastating setbacks for the new manager coz once they were leading the tally by 3-1 and eventually lost the game by 5-3 which puts a dot over Gaal’s exaggerated claims about his newly formed team. Liverpool as well lost the game to West Ham by 3-1 on Saturday; but former Milan forward enjoyed watching United loss more rather Reds show. He apparently teased the Red Devils gameplay on his Twitter account and lambasted Dutch manager’s overspending in the last summer to strengthen the side, but results are coming completely opposite to what everyone had thought to be. Balotelli tweeted last night “Man Utd…LOL” which made countless fans furious over him and racial abuses against him start triggering within seconds.
Merseyside Police has registered a compliant on the basis of media reports and investigating whether these hated comments are coming in a preplanned manner or just a way to react over Balotelli’s provocative comments over United loss. Police informed about their investigation in a statement where they said, “We can confirm officers are looking into offensive comments made on Twitter about Mario Balotelli earlier today. As far as I am aware there have been no complaints but we have been made aware of it by a number of press inquiries.”
As far Manchester United is concerned, it has played five games till now in English topflight this season, and their score on the leaderboard is just five points and if we compare it with that of former manager Moyes, he was ahead by two points and we know what happened to him thereafter, but no one has yet started criticizing former Barcelona manager for the goodwill he has earned in soccer fraternity, but if his side does not show an improvement in next couple of games, English media would be the first to start hating him. For Leicester, Esteban Cambiasso, David Nugent, Jamie Vardy, and José Ulloa were responsible for painful loss to the 2012-13 league champions, while for United, Robin van Persie, Ander Herrera, and Robin van Persie gave them initial lead.
Expectedly, Gaal now seems to be under lots of pressure to prove he made no mistake in signing army of new players and they can still help United win this English season. Let’s see how his side performs in next few matches!
