‘Crazy’ Mario Balotelli Fan Tattoos Player’s Name, Number On Back (Photo)

Mario Balotelli hasn’t played much soccer in recent months, but the devotion of at least one of his fans hasn’t diminished.

A Balotelli fan tattooed the Italian’s name and number on his own back. After seeing a photo of the tribute with his own eyes, Balotelli shared it and asked Instagram user haza3f the question on everyone’s mind.

@haza3f THANK YOU for the support but don't you think is a bit crazy? 😂🙈.

Balotelli, 25, joined AC Milan from Liverpool last summer on a season-long loan. Injuries have limited Balotelli to just five games, but he has regained his fitness and now is expected to feature heavily for AC Milan in the last four-and-a-half months of the season.

Meanwhile, the Balotelli superfan should be concerned about one thing above all else: When one of soccer’s biggest mavericks wonders whether he has gone mad, he probably already has gone over the edge.
