Adel Taarabt Scores Wonder Debut Goal For AC Milan In Same Game Which Leaves Mario Balotelli In Tears

Well, AC Milan‘s 3-1 defeat to Napoli on Saturday night was eventful.

Not only did new loan boy Adel Taarabt score a wonder solo goal just seven minutes into his debut but Mario Balotelli was brought to tears as he suffered racial abuse in the San Paolo Stadium.

Taarabt joined Clarence Seedorf’s side on the last day of the January transfer window and, despite failing to hit a cow’s ass with a banjo for Fulham, was quick off the mark in a big game against Rafa Benitez’s side:

Napoli went on to dominate the match after that early goal – cue Balotelli tears after he was substituted in the 73rd minute for Giampaolo Pazzini:

It seems Super Mario has a human side after all.

It’s unclear whether or not the Italian striker was crying in response to reported racial abuse.
