Remember when your mum used to tell you to pick your friends wisely? Well someone needs to have a word with Boxer Amir Khan and tell him the same message before he lands himself in trouble in the name of Mario Balotelli.

The Bolton Boxer tweeted a picture of himself with the Manchester City star on Thursday, following his winning performance in the Italy V Germany Euro 2012 semifinals.

Don’t get us wrong, we here at Pappzd love Mario and his ‘couldn’t give a flying feck’ attitude we just think that if Amir wants to maintain his squeaky clean image, bad boy Balotelli isn’t exactly the ideal role model. Apart from both being sportsmen, we can’t think of anything else the two have in common…

Oh wait apart from mysteriously finding themselves in strip clubs to then make public apologies to their girlfriends the next day because they got caught.

Judging by the rare smile on Mario’s face, could this be the start of something new?
