Balotelli played for two of United’s biggest rivals, Manchester City and Liverpool, so was unsurprisingly delighted with the result
The honeymoon is over for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he experienced his first defeat since taking charge of Manchester United on Tuesday night, after Paris Saint-Germain won 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe have put the Ligue 1 side in a commanding position.
Given United’s stature as a club, there are plenty of people who would have been happy to see them outclassed on their home turf.
And former Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli took to Twitter to bask in the glory of seeing the Red Devils lose on Tuesday night, posting a series of tweets mocking Solskjaer’s men.
His first tweet was a video he took of the Parisians passing the ball around their opponents as the game wound down into a comfortable PSG victory.
A matter of moments later, Balotelli tweeted the message: “City fans happy! Good night”
Inevitably this baited some United fans to react and Balotelli responded with a throwback picture of the scoreboard after City’s 6-1 victory over their local rivals in October 2011 – a game where Balotelli scored and did an iconic celebration when he brandished the message “Why always me?” under his shirt.
