Nice striker Mario Balotelli has taken what appears to be a veiled swipe at fans of his former clubs Liverpool and Manchester City.
Nice have been struggling in Ligue 1 this term, sitting in 14th place after a poor run of form, and Mario Balotelli has insinuated that Reds and City supporters would abandon their team in the same situation.
“At my former clubs, a situation like ours would never have gone down so well,” Balotelli told French paper Nice Matin.
“There, against Strasbourg, we played very badly and lost a match that we never should have lost, the supporters were always behind us, singing, applauding. To have support like that, it’s magnificent.”
