It has now been confirmed that Mario Balotelli has now joined French club Nice on a free transfer.
Wow….This goes to show how desperate FSG were to get rid of his £90k per week wages.
His contract did expire in the summer so all they’ve done is manage to find a club to prevent a termination fee having to he paid…. Great work FSG…!!
Not living up to expectations
The transfer also represents a massive loss of £16m within just 2 years. He joined from AC Milan and quite frankly didn’t live up to the expectations. Only managing to score 4 goals, 1 of which was in the league.
Having had rather unsuccessful loan spells at AC Milan a lot of people, me included had though he’d have learnt his lesson and was going to prove his worth to Klopp.
Summer training with Klopp..
He has been in training all summer with Klopp and his advisors so I assume that he’s just said “not good enough..”
But with a current forward line of; Sturridge, Origi, Ings, Firmino, Mane and Coutino could you see him fitting in?
He doesn’t really seem the player suited to Klopp’s ‘heavy meatal’ Football.
All I can say is, good luck in France. I wish you all the best.
