These are all the best Mario Balotelli takes Beşiktaş penalty jokes from Twitter after the Italian striker overruled captain Jordan Henderson to step up to take the decisive late kick and net the winner.
Balotelli scored from the spot in the 85th minute of the Europa League last-32 clash between Liverpool and Turkish side Beşiktaş at Anfield last night, ensuring a 1-0 home win – but not before an apparent argument with Henderson and Daniel Sturridge over who should take it.
With Steven Gerrard accusing the player of showing “disrespect” on live TV, the debate is sure to rumble on.
