Mario Balotelli is moving from Liverpool to AC Milan on a season-long loan. This seems like a good deal for the striker, who gets a chance to redeem himself after an awful year in the Premiership.
Balotelli has a reputation for being a bit of a headcase, and AC Milan were well aware of this when they agreed to take him on. As such, they've included some extra special provisions in Balotelli's contract that probably won't be found anywhere else.
Balotelli's rules, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport:
-He "will not damage the club's image via social media," and his social media accounts will be monitored by the team.
-He must "tone down" his extravagant hairstyles and clothing.
-He has to stop smoking.
-He must not go over a certain blood-alcohol level.
-He may not go to nightclubs.
-He can never be late for training.
Some of those seem reasonable. Others, not so much. Time will tell whether he adheres to them.
