Italian and Liverpool striker, Mario Balotelli has denied rumours of having s*x before each game in order to get into the correct mind-set.
“Someone told me recently that I had apparently said that if I have s*x three or four hours before a game, it is working for me on the pitch,” Balotelli said in an interview with Sport magazine.
“Trust me, if I am having s*x four hours before a game, I am not able to play. I don’t think anyone could.
“It makes me laugh, but this is not me.”
Balotelli has only scored once for his new club after joining from AC Milan in the summer, against minnows Ludogorets in the Champions League.
