The £16m Liverpool Signing Balotelli Planning to Win Ballon D’or

Former Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who has left Anfield this summer has criticised his former managers Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp. Blamed them for not giving a chance to prove his quality.

The 26-year-old Italian striker also believes that he could still compete for a Ballon d’Or, speaking on press-conference scoring twice during his debut for Nice.

‘Apart from the fans, who were fantastic, and some players who I got on really well with, I didn’t like the club,’ the striker told Canal Plus.

‘I had two coaches, with Rodgers and Klopp for a short time, but neither their methods nor their personality left me with a good impression. I never really felt right there.’

He added on the possibility of a Ballon d’Or: ‘Of course. It’s not too late. I think I could have already won it by now, but by working hard in training I could still win it in the next two or three years.’

The goals from Balotelli has helped Nice to register a win 3-2 over Ligue 1 giants Marseille.

Since the 2013/14 season Balotelli hasn’t scored over four goals. however, he has already two goals on his name and it could be an evolution of Italian forward.
