Please, please, please be relevant again, Mario Balotelli.

The mercurial if not petulant striker has struggled to produce in his last two seasons, with Liverpool and Milan, and has earned the ire of many a soccer fan.

Now at Nice and hoping to thrive, Balotelli has responded to criticism from the ex-Liverpool defender in the best way possible: with classic “Finally Mario” style.

Here’s Carragher’s Tweet, followed by Balotelli’s fabulous reply (He’s pictured above playing in charity game for Carragher).

The Italian striker’s Tweet has a “Best Hater” trophy that features a Balotelli-mirror selfie in the trophy. Whether you like Balotelli or not, he’s got a cutting edge in humor.
