Just a few days ago:
the Italy and Manchester City striker Balotelli has threatened to kill anyone who throws a banana at him in the street or on the pitch during the Euro 2012.
His comments come a day after ex England's Campbell, speaking on Panorama, told England fans not to travel to Poland and Ukraine because they could "end up coming back in a coffin".
A BBC documentary highlighted the Euro hosts’ problems with racism and UEFA insist referees could abandon games if there is any trouble.
Advice: boycott the tourism in those shite places, they don't deserve to get any money.
Balotelli said: "I will not accept racism at all. It's unacceptable. If someone throws a banana at me in the street, I will go to jail, because I will kill them. We are in 2012, it can’t happen.”
The 21-year-old is not a stranger to racism and was once pelted with bananas in a Rome bar before the European Under-21 Championships in June 2009. "It was lucky that the police arrived quickly because, I swear, I would have beaten them. I would have really destroyed them. I hope it never happens again."
Roma coward captain Totti also had a disgraceful behaviour against him, hitting Mario from behind.
He has been the victim of racist abuse on several occasions – as in Turin when Juventus fans were singing "if you jump, Balotelli dies" and he scored a goal for Inter Milan, most recently in February when Porto were fined over the behaviour of their supporters in a Europa League tie against City.
"Let's see what happens at the Euros," he added. "I hope it will pass without a problem."
Hilarious Modric said Italians are afraid of "fixed" games... boy if you don't know, fixed games already happened everywhere, Spain, Germany, france, Turkey, etc. everybody has their own scandals, and in 2004 Denmark-Sweden had to be 2-2 to send home Italy, and it curiously ended 2-2...
