Mario Balotelli’s preparations for the 2014 World Cup were put to one side this week, as he proposed to his girlfriend.
The 23-year-old is currently with the Italy squad in Mangaratiba this week gearing up for their tournament kick-off against England on Saturday evening.
However, he put preparation work to one side to pop the question to his girlfriend Fanny Neguesha, overnight posting the below two pictures on his Instagram account with the following message:
“She said yes.. The most important yes in my life. That was the place of my question! I Love you and happy birthday too ! Je t'aime my WIFE ❤ @thisisfannyneguesha”
Fanny took to Instagram soon after to respond: “Tonight, I said the most important yes of my life. That was the best present for my birthday! I love you first and unique husband.”
