Mario Balotelli sent off for insulting the referee in English

Speaking to L’Équipe, referee Tony Chapron explained why he sent off OGC Nice forward Mario Balotelli last night in their Ligue 1 encounter with FC Lorient.

“He insulted me in English. I won’t go into detail, but it was the usual.”

This represents Balotelli’s 3rd red card of the campaign, although admittedly one was overturned, and capped off a woeful performance from the Italian forward.
