Mario Balotelli Interrupts Inter Milan Press Conference, But Here Are 5 Better Presser Performances (VIDEO)

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is slacking on the pitch and off it now.

Yesterday, it was reported he "crashed" new Internazionale coach's Andrea Stramaccioni unveiling. When actually, he merely interrupted it to shake hands with Stramaccioni and assorted Nerazurri officials.

So underwhelming in his past two displays for the Citizens he was substituted at half-time against Chelsea last week, he has occasionally made amends with his off-field antics.

Balotelli interrupts Inter:

Sent by his mother to John Lewis to purchase an ironing board, he returned with a quad bike, a Scalectrix and a trampoline. He has found bibs to be troublesome, is allergic to certain grass and his house got set on fire after he and friends got so bored they decided to let off some fireworks from his bathroom window.

But the Italian was hardly Owen Wilson or Vince Vaughn yesterday. Like his irritable behaviour in the blue shirt for club and country, he must try harder if he wants to seriously be mentioned in the same breath as Eric Cantona.

So here are truly some eventful press conferences...
