Mario Balotelli hits out at the Lega’s immigration and security chief - “maybe they still haven’t told him he’s black…”
Formerly known as the Lega Nord due to their desire for greater autonomy from the south, the party has restyled itself as a populist, anti-immigration group.
Sunday’s election returned Toni Iwobi as Italy’s first black senator, as the Lega took close to 18 per cent of the vote, but the Nice striker - who was born in Palermo to immigrant parents - is not impressed.
“Maybe I'm blind, or maybe they still haven’t told him he’s black,” wrote Balotelli on Instagram, along with a picture of Iwobi with Lega leader Matteo Salvini, both in ‘Stop Invasion’ t-shirts.
“Shame on you!”
