Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how an old video of Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden criticizing Italian striker Mario Balotelli has gone viral on social media.

The viral footage shows a young Foden who was aged 10 taking aim at the former Manchester City forward while at the club’s academy.

Mario Balotelli spent three seasons at the Etihad stadium and was a member of incredible set of players that won City’s first league title under manager Roberto Mancini in the 2011/12 season with Argentine forward Sergio Aguero scoring with the last kick of the game to secure victory.

Balotelli was once dubbed “unmanageable” by his former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho because he regularly hit the headlines for his off-field antics.
