We have recently seen Arsenal and Manchester United honor their legends by having statues of them at their home grounds. Arsenal’s Henry, Adams and United manager Ferguson’s statues are the few notable ones.
Now it’s time for a statue of the super Mario!Balotelli Statue haha!
But guess what? It’s not AC Milan who have ordered the statue, it’s Mario Balotelli himself who wants his replica at his home.
Italian artist Livio Scarpella is the one who is going to build the statue for Balotelli.
Scarpella told Il Giornale di Brescia,
“I have received the commission, but I’ve never met Balotelli so I am working from photos,”
“I have imagined him as an athlete from ancient times and the statue will be a mix of classical and pop style in platinum and colored bronze with the eyes made of stones.”
Rumors have suggested that the statue will be the exact replica of his famous emotionless troll celebration when he scored the winning goal in Euro 2012 semi finals.
