Balotelli explains Instagram celebration

Olympique Marseille’s Mario Balotelli confirmed his Instagram celebration was planned. “Whenever I do something, it goes around the world!”

Balotelli scored an overhead kick during Marseille’s 2-0 win against Saint-Etienne on Sunday and celebrated by livestreaming his celebration via the social-media platform.

“I gave my phone to an OM journalist” the Italy striker told Canal Football Club.

“I told him to keep my phone behind the goal because if I scored a goal, I’d make [an Instagram] story.

“This image will go around the world? Whenever I do something, it goes around the world!”
