MARIO Balotelli has explained he swapped shirts with Real Madrid at half-time to go undercover and win the game for Liverpool.“This is the last thing they will ever expect”
The player planned to take the field for Madrid in the second half and turn the match around with a series of spectacular own goals.
Balotelli said: Mario Balotelli is about thinking outside the box.
I assessed my play in the first half and understood I was not an asset to Liverpool, but a liability who was losing them the match.
But what, I reasoned, if I was playing for the other team?
I swapped shirts with Pepe, counting on the fact that nobody would mention my changed appearance because it would be racist.
I recognised the risk of my plan. What if by instinct I scored a hat-trick for Real Madrid and was offered a contract dwarfing that of Ronaldo?
But it was a risk I was willing to take.
Undeterred by the failure of his scheme, Balotelli is forging ahead with a new plan to double the top speed of his Ferrari F12 by packing the boot with explosives.
