Mario Balotelli’s career is not over, he just needs the ‘right opportunity’. That’s according to the strikers agent Mino Raiola.
The striker is not part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the coming season after spending last season on loan at AC Milan, where he managed to score just one goal in 20 Serie A appearances.
Raiola told the Liverpool Echo:
It is never too late.
If you think Mario makes me despair, you’re wrong because his life has improved a lot and now he just needs the right opportunity.
Of course, he also needs a bit of luck which he hasn’t had over the last two seasons, but I assure you he’s a great person, a lad with a big heart.
Where will he go? I’m saying nothing. Let’s see what happens, I won’t close the door on any solution. That goes for Mario and all my players.
I listen to what is offered to me and then I decide along with them.
The former Manchester City striker has been linked with moves back to his native Italy, as well as attracting interest from Turkey and China.
