Balotelli 'feels empty' after house is burgled

Mario Balotelli Italy

The soap opera life of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli continues with news that his house was broken into and his Porsche stolen.

Mario Balotelli is rarely out of the news in Italy and his dramatic off-the-field existence has continued as he has twice been the victim of attempted robberies.

The tempestuous marksman is expected to quit AC Milan this summer after the club's disappointing season and he has been linked with Arsenal.

One reason he may leave Italy is excessive media spotlight and trouble caused by his public persona and Balotelli again received adverse attention this week.

It was reported on Thursday that Balotelli and his brother Enoch had given chase when a thief attempted to steal Mario's watch on a night out and now it has emerged that the player's house has been burgled.

According to local newspaper La Provincia di Como, burglars broke into Balotelli's house in Limido Comasco and stole gold jewellery, watches and a Porsche, although they left his Ferrari.

The Porsche was later recovered by police in the nearby town of Legnano.

Super Mario had spent the evening with his brother Enoch and returned to find his house had been broken into.

Balotelli then took to Twitter to express his anguish, stating: 'I feel empty, without emotions. But I will always fight for the people I love. They deserve it."
