Former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli took to Twitter to troll Manchester United on Tuesday, celebrating the team's 2-0 loss at home against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League. 

Super Mario kicked things off by sharing this short video of the visiting team passing the ball around, with their fans mocking the Red Devils for being unable to intervene:

He also noted fans of Manchester City must have been pleased with what happened:

With plenty of angry United fans replying to the tweets, the Italian decided to add some fuel to the fire:

Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe both scored in the second half to give Les Parisiens two away goals and a massive advantage heading into the second leg. Paul Pogba was sent off late, and he'll miss out on the return leg.

The loss marked United's first under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had gone 11 matches unbeaten until Tuesday.

The 28-year-old Balotelli won a Premier League title and FA Cup with the Citizens and also played for United's other rivals, Liverpool. He joined Marseille in January after a productive spell with Nice and has scored two goals in three matches for his new club.
