Mario Balotelli might have wished he had left the Etihad Stadium early after all when he was mobbed by gleeful Manchester United fans exiting City's ground.
Substituted after 51 minutes, Balotelli trudged down the tunnel before returning to watch City lose to a stoppage-time Robin van Persie winner.
Looking conspicuous in his camouflaged Bentley, Balotelli timed his exit with that of travelling Reds, customarily kept behind in order to allow City fans to disperse from Eastlands.
Evidently, Balotelli's car wasn't camouflaged enough. Maybe he should invest in James Bond's Aston Martin 'Vanish'.
