Mario Balotelli’s Dad lives in Wednesfield!

That’s right! It’s not 1st April, but you’d be forgiven for thinking it was!

According to the Express and Star, the Italian Striker’s biological father Thomas Barwuah, a Ghanaian inmigran lives right here in Wednesfield.

Mario, who recently scored the winning goal against England at the World Cup in Brazil, was given up for adoption by his parents aged 3, whilst living in Sicily and since then his Mother & Father (who are now separated) moved to England, with his Father settling in Wednesfield.

I guess we’ll just have to add Balotelli to the long list of sports stars with a Wednesfield connection!

Co-founder of WV11.co.uk. I live in Wednesfield and am involved in various community groups and associations. I build websites and develop digital marketing strategies for a living. When not writing for WV11 or attending meetings I play drums in my band Arbor Lights. I think Wednesfield is a great place, with a great sense of community and it isn't given the credit it deserves. Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
