Balotelli Tweets 'This is the End' After Milan Draw

Mario Balotelli wrote “This is the end” accompanied by a smiley face on his Twitter account following Milan’s 1-1 draw with Genoa, prompting reports that he will leave the San Siro during the January transfer window. The former Manchester City striker followed up his cryptic tweet with two more tweets on Monday morning. "Forza Milan, always and regardless." The next one was simply an emoticon for a winking smile.

Balotelli and Milan are going through a tough time. The San Siro club has now gone five games without a win and sits just four points above the relegation zone in 14th place in the Serie A table. Balotelli has just four goals in 14 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

Against Genoa, Kaka opened the scoring after just four minutes but Alberto Gilardino brought the visitor level four minutes later from the penalty spot. Balotelli also missed a penalty -- his second of the season -- during a game in which Milan played with a man advantage for nearly an hour after Thomas Manfredini was sent off in the 36th minute. After the game, Kaka and Christia Abbiati walked out to speak to Milan’s angry Ultras fans, who blocked off the exits of the San Siro.

As for the controversial tweet, reports claimed Balotelli’s could be referring to Milan coach Massimiliano Alegri’s future, his own, or he might have just been referring to the Hollywood movie of the same name starring James Franco and Seth Rogen.
