Balotelli’s reputation is in tatters and the 24 year old’s career has hit a brick wall as Liverpool are looking to offload him with no top club willing to take him. With no suitors for Balotelli’s signature, Lupa Castelli a team in the third tier of Italian football have offered to sign him firm Liverpool.
Balotelli joined Liverpool following the Departure of Luis Suarez and there was an air of optimism around Anfield but that optimism was quickly crushed as Balotelli managed only one league goal all season and just two in all competitions. Balotelli’s lack of goals was made worse by his off the field antics which made him more of a liability to Liverpool. With his career seemingly over, Lupa Castelli are offering him a “fresh start” ‘Our intention is to bring our friend, Balotelli, here, a player who at this time needs to start afresh because we see that he does not want to play anymore, has fans opposing him and is no longer able to show his quality,’ honorary president Marco Amelia told Sky Sport Italia. The third tier Italian side seem confident that they can work out the economics surrounding this deal.
Balotelli’s situation can best be described as: Oh how have the mighty fallen?
