Manchester - Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli gave £1 000 to a tramp outside a casino - after a whopping £25 000 win.VIDEO: Mario Balotelli struggles to dress himselfAccording to The Sun website, Balotelli, 20, who earns £100 000 a week after signing from Inter Milan for £24 million last year, is said to often give cash to homeless people he sees around Manchester.A source said: "Mario is really generous. He always hands £20 notes to the Big Issue sellers without even taking the magazine. There's a guy he always sees around town with ginger dreadlocks and a beard. He carries his possessions in two carrier bags."He was outside the club in the early hours so Mario handed him a wad of notes after his big win. The tramp couldn't believe his luck. It was enough to keep him going for months."Balotelli has frequently hit the headlines for his off-the-pitch antics. At the weekend he had a scuffle with Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand after City's 1-0 win in the FA Cup semi-final. Last month he got an official warning for throwing darts at youth team players at his club's Carrington training ground. His fines now total £300 000 in one season.
