The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern were pleased to see the back of him this summer…
Mario Balotelli’s spell at Liverpool was an unmitigated disaster, and the Liverpool fans here in the Tavern were watching in horror this summer as he looked set to spend yet another year on Merseyside.
Thankfully, from their point of view, that didn’t happen – and Balotelli was shipped out to Ligue 1 with Nice on a free transfer.
A night of celebration from the Anfield faithful followed here in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Whilst the deal seemingly made sense from the perspective of both parties; like most things involving Mario Balotelli – it has not been void of controversy.
We’ve already brought you news of Balotelli’s spat with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher following his departure, and it looks like the Italian is far from done.
In fact, the divisive forward has now fired shots at Liverpool themselves.
Speaking of his decision to move to the club, Balotelli has pulled no punches, describing it as the: “worst mistake of my life”.
Absolutely ruthless. If he wants to get on the good side of the Liverpool faithful; that is definitely one way NOT to do it.
Our landlord hailed the signing of Balotelli when he joined the club; but he definitely got that one wrong. Very rare.
Nonetheless, Balotelli has made a good start to life in France, scoring a double over the weekend for new club Nice.
