Balo inspires new board game

Cape Town - Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons for as long as we can remember, and nothing has changed lately.

The Italian has recently received major criticism for failing to impress in front of goal for the Reds. The controversial forward's shirt swapping incident with Real Madrid's Pepe during halftime of Liverpool's Champions League tie on Wednesday, as well as a police investigation following reports claiming he threatened a woman for taking pictures of his car, have also landed him in hot water.

All this activity has prompted BBC's Match Of The Day to produce a Balotelli board game. Fancy a game of Snakes and Ladders?

Will you climb the ladder to help the Reds win the title? Or land on a snake and end up setting fire works off in your bathroom?

All you need to do is roll a dice to see what you’ll do next, which is probably what Balo does anyway.
