Super Mario Balotelli explains his decision to stay at OGC Nice in his own special way!
Super Mario Balotelli will stay at Nice for at least another season.
OGC Nice was prepared to lose Mario Balotelli in the summer, but it didn’t happen.
Marseille was rumored to be the most interested in signing Balotelli, but nothing happened in the end.
Given that the transfer window is slowly closing, Super Mario Balotelli has decided to issue a statement about his intention to stay at Nice (in his own special way).
Balotelli had this to say on OGC Nice TV!
“To be honest, at the end of last season I wanted to leave. The president and the club knew it. I stayed because the atmosphere is great with my team-mates, the club and everything. I also had one year left on my contract, so I decided to stay.
“It’s my decision and nobody tells me what to do. I do whatever I want, with all due respect. The final decision regarding my career is always up to me.
“I had five very concrete proposals and I waited. But in the end, I decided to stay. But I could have left very easily.”
A very strange statement from Balotelli, who basically said that Nice can be very happy that he stayed, but the truth is right the opposite.
“It’s my decision and nobody tells me what to do!”
Balotelli was flopping everywhere, because of his “bad boy” persona and just not playing well. His best decision of his career was to go to Nice, where he has truly flourished as a player.
He showed his best performances at Nice, so he should be happy to stay at the club, that revived his career, for another season.
We will see how Super Mario Balotelli is going to perform under Vieira, as there were some “sparks” between them already.
