With a playing ban that is to last for the rest of the season, Mario Balotelli has plenty of time on his hands for primping.
The Manchester city striker was pictured out in Manchester yesterday with his younger brother Enoch, who looked more like his twin.
The pair were sporting matching platinum blonde mohicans, as well as matching outfits.

Both wore black trainers paired with grey tracksuit bottoms.
Mario jazzed his ensemble up a bit with a leather jacket, while Enoch stuck to a casual hoodie.
Passers-by stared at the brothers as they walked through the city centre with their head-turning hairstyles.

With his career in
limbo following his sending off against Arsenal, Mario
vowed to improve his ways in an effort to bid at the Etihad
Stadium beyond next season.
Since manager Roberto Mancini issued
what seemed to a be a final warning to the controversial Italian striker
over his behaviour, he has kept a relatively low profile.
But his new look is attracting plenty of attention, and will undoubtedly keep his name in the headlines while his future is decided.
