Mario Balotelli is not currently on Liverpool’s preseason tour of the Far East and Australia, but he is certainly keeping himself busy.

The Italian international had a bereavement in the family which meant he missed the opening days of preseason and Balotelli remained in Liverpool to work on his fitness while the first team is away.
It also seems like Balotelli has been working on his self-balancing scooter moves, as some hilarious videos have emerged over the past few days of the eccentric forward.

Here is one of Balotelli cruising along in the Trafford Centre, a huge shopping mall on the outskirts of Manchester, with quite a crowd following him.
And another video has surfaced showing “Super Mario” buzzing around his back yard on his scooter and finishing things off with a tidy header into a trash can.
We have been treated to a whole host of weird and wonderful acts from Balotelli on and off the pitch over the years, but the first video of him buzzing along in a shopping mall nonchalantly without a care in the world may just be my favorite.
