MANCHESTER CITY STRIKER Mario Balotelli stunned students at the city’s Xaverian College on Thursday by dropping in and asking to use the facilities.
After answering his call of nature, Balotelli headed for the staff room and then on a 20-minute tour of the college.
He is then reported to have sped off in his Bentley, though unconfirmed reports state that he simply drove off like a normal person.
“I’m a City fan so it was amazing to see him but it was a bit ridiculous for him to come here – you would never expect it to happen,” said student Edward Gasson.
A spokesperson for Xaverian College confirmed the surprise visit.
“Xaverian was delighted to receive a surprise visit from Mario, who chatted to some of the students at one of Manchester’s most successful colleges.
“We weren’t able to enrol him on any courses, but he is welcome back anytime.”
