Mario Balotelli was booked during Nice's 3-2 loss for complaining about racist abuse, his French Ligue 1 club and a local newspaper have claimed. A tweet from Nice at half-time said Balotelli had "picked up a yellow card after... getting annoyed at fans' racist abuse". Nice Matin said Balotelli "eyeballed, pointed his finger" at fans and "complained of racist abuse". The newspaper said Dijon 'keeper Baptiste Reynet had tried to calm down a furious Balotelli telling him he "hadn't heard any racist chants", to which the Italian forward replied it was coming from "two or three supporters".
