Mario Balotelli, the Italian striker was born today in Palermo, Italy.
He has more skills than any football player needs, but the inconsistency and the attitude perhaps didn’t help him to reach the elite level.
Mario Balotelli joined many clubs and face many issues throughout his career
At Lumezzane he started his career as a professional footballer but hadn’t had more than 2 appearances. He then moved to Inter Milan, Manchester City, AC Milan, Liverpool, he never had any consistent run with any club.
The disciplinary issues did him no good. He had been blessed to play under one of the best managers like Roberto Mancini and the ‘special one’ José Mourinho. But the controversies and lack of consistency forced the managers to sell him.
He became a not-so-favourite player for top leagues
After a move to Nice in 2016, Mario Balotelli has gone out of contention with many top clubs and managers.
He has always been a talking point in the world of football, more for unnecessary reasons.
Anyways, he has signed a new contract with Turkish Süper Lig club Adana Demirspor, we wish him well for the future and a very Happy Birthday to him!
