Balotelli turns out for Stoke reserves

Stoke City have handed Mario Balotelli's younger brother Enoch a trial at the Britannia Stadium in the hope he can make a similar impact to his sibling in the Premier League.

While Mario has been making waves at Manchester City, Enoch has been training with the Stoke youth team, but made his debut this week for the Potters' reserves in a 0-0 draw at Burton Albion, where he showed some neat touches and the family penchant for showboating.

The 19-year-old forward, who was born in Ghana before moving to Italy with Mario where the duo were adopted, played 82 minutes of the match before coming off with cramp.

Stoke academy coach Dave Kevan told the Stoke Sentinel: "He's been with training with us for a while and it was good to give him a run out. He's a good boy but a little bit raw at the moment. We will just have to see how things go."

If Enoch does sign for Stoke, the Balotelli's will join Rio and Anton Ferdinand, plus Fabio and Rafael da Silva as brothers playing in the Premier League.
