The 26-year-old, who was meant to be starting up front for Nice in their match against Nantes at the weekend, ended up missing the first two minutes because he had tied his boot laces too tight.
Rather than, you know, reaching down and giving them another go; Mario instead insisted on not one, but TWO members of Nice's backroom staff to come to his immediate aid.
To be fair, this is the guy who made a training bib look like Houdini's straight jacket.
