In what is yet another bizarre episode in the 21-year-old Italian's career, police and fire crews were called to the striker's home in Macclesfield shortly after midnight after the blaze broke out.

The Guardian reported that Balotelli had trained as normal on Saturday and told club officials that the blaze started when he and four friends began setting off fireworks through an open window.

The blaze inside the property started when a firework set bathroom towels alight, Balotelli is reported to have said.
