- Mario Balotelli planned to mock Paris-Saint-Germain on Sunday, March 17
- He wanted to show PSG fans the face of Marcus Rashford under his jersey if he had scored

Italian football star Mario Balotelli had planned to mock Paris-Saint-Germain on Sunday, March 17, if he had scored against Thomas Tuchel's side in a Ligue 1 encounter.
Paris-Saint-Germain defeated Mario Balotelli and his Marseille teammates 3-1 in which Angel Di Maria scored brace as Balotelli failed to score.
Mario Balotelli wanted to troll Paris-Saint-Germain's Champions League exit with the face of Marcus Rashford under his jersey.
According to French football journalist Jonathan Johnson, the Italy international was wearing a t-shirt with a photograph of Rashford underneath his jersey, that he would have unleashed if he scored.
Johnson tweeted: “Mario Balotelli reportedly had a t-shirt with the face of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford underneath his Marseille shirt in case he scored & celebrated vs PSG this evening."
Fans of Paris-Saint-Germain and players are still nursing the pain of the penalty Marcus Rashford scored against them in the Champions League round of 16 encounter.
Mario's celebration would have been a complete U-turn on the “Why always me?” t-shirt he unveiled at Old Trafford when he scored the opener as City beat United 6-1 in 2011.
