Jurgen Klopp Who? Mario Balotelli Says He Doesn’t Know Liverpool Boss
The rejuvenated Mario Balotelli has spoken on his rapport with former boss Jurgen Klopp.
Super Mario said that he never had any contact with Klopp and the only time the manager spoke to him was to tell him that he should go out on loan.
Balotelli was signed by former Reds manager Brendon Rodgers, but failed to settle at Anfield, and was shipped back to former club AC Milan.
Balotelli failed to make a mark at Milan too, however the Italian international did find some form late in the season, but that was not enough to convince either of the club to hold him.
The 25-year-old made a free transfer to French club OG Nice this summer and has since been in a stellar form, scoring 6 goals in five matches.
Balotelli has claimed that there was never any chance for him to succeed at Liverpool, due lack of communication with Jurgen Klopp.
“Klopp? I don’t know him,” Balotelli told Sky Sport Italia. “He just told me to leave Liverpool on loan and then to come back. I said: ‘Thanks, bye.'”
