Mario Balotelli - Liverpool Worst Mistake of My Life!

Mario Balotelli was once again making headlines on and off the field, scoring twice on his Nice debut before calling his Liverpool move “the worst mistake of my life”.

The Italy international, who moved from Liverpool on deadline day after a desperate spell at Anfield, struck after seven minutes with a penalty, his first league goal since 22 September last year.

Balotelli added a second, 12 minutes from time, after the visitors Marseille had taken the lead through Florian Thauvin and Bafetimbi Gomis before Wylan Cyprien snatched victory for Nice in the 87th minute.

The two league goals were more in 78 minutes for Nice than his entire Premier League total at Liverpool which amounted to one against Tottenham Hotspur.

However, rather than accepting criticism for his wretched spell on Merseyside, the 26-year-old told the French television station Canal Plus that the club were to blame.

Asked by a reporter what had gone wrong in his career, he said: “I joined Liverpool. It was the worst mistake of my life. Apart from the fans, who were fantastic with me, I must be honest, and the players, who I had a good rapport with, I didn’t like the club.

“I had two coaches, Brendan Rodgers and J├╝rgen Klopp. As people they didn’t make a good impression on me. I didn’t get along with them.”
