Since last summer, Mario Balotelli (28 years old) has been trying to leave Nice and sign the Olympique de Marseille. By the gymnasium schoolchild, the Italian traveled over summer frustration to the winter transmission window. The discomfort is easily perceptible because the Italian has not achieved any goal with Aiglons in the league. The deficiency that left some observers confused when the former Milanais finally landed on Canebière. Six league matches 1 Nobody later asked this question.
Balotelli often find it difficult to enter
Last night in the Marseille victory against Saint-Etienne (2-0), Balotelli was distinguished by having scored his fourth goal in six league matches. Everything celebrated with celebration has become a virus in social networks. What a good word for him from his coach Rudi Garcia. "Mario did a hard job, but if there were no goals, it would certainly be a penalty, just as he is physically strong and smart, and it's the power of big goals." At Saint-Etienne, Jean-Louis Gasset also made his compliment and did not hesitate to parallelize the player he knew well in Paris Saint-Germain.
"He took the pressure, the light, reminds me of Ibrahimovich and heads to the Ibra goal, is a great player, good in this context, bringing the audience back, trusting, and many of her partners will raise their level of play», Balotelli may be satisfied with the debut in Marseille. Italian is already delighted by the atmosphere of its new club. "I have to work a little more (to become Prince Velodrome, ed), but it is good to have fans like this … Normally, no matter where I go, I always start well and it is important to continue." The last sentence does not make sense. In fact, when he starts out with the club, a native of Palermo has often come to light.
Liverpool, the only exception
December 2007 "Balo" is taking its first steps with Inter Milan. Result: four goals in six matches (Serie A and Italian Cup), including two four times (one against Juventus separately). In 2010, Balotelli arrived in Manchester City in summer and scored five goals in all his first six games (Premier League and Europa League) in his first six games. Two and a half years later it's even better. When he left Citizens to return to the country in the winter of 2013 in AC Milan, Super Mario found his strength seven times for the same number of games.
Only Liverpool is the exception in this record after six matches (1 goal). Because in 2016, when Balotelli entered Nice with a surprise, he found Italian six (6 goals, all competitions). Seeing Transalpin Boxing for his OM debut is nothing surprising from the point of view of the player's career. It remains clear whether this will be confirmed over time and whether OM will benefit from the Balotelli version 2016-2018. Two years during which the Italian lived the most productive moments of his career with 33 goals in Ligue 1 under Nice shirt.
