Mario Balotelli, is a great footballer who was destined to become the third most gifted/talented black footballer in the world after the famous Pele (Edson Arantee Donancimento) of Brazil, George Upon Wear of Liberia, who became the second most talented black-footballer in the world after winning the Ballon Dior/FIFA’S Prestigious No. 1 Footballer of the world award while playing for A/C Milan and presently the President of Liberia in Africa.
Mario Balotelli, who was born of Africa/Ghanaian parentage, The Appiahs, while sojourning in the European Country, Italy the young Mario was born and later adopted by foster Italian parents called Balotelli. Thus, he was introduced to football academy at tender age where his talent in football was nurtured. This developmental process in football took him to the famous Barcelona academy in Spain where he went for trials.
He started developing his football strategies and prowess while playing for Inter-Milan in Italy and later AC Milan. In these clubs at Italy was where the young Mario started making waves in the round-leather sport as he was becoming famous via recognisable talent, he was likewise distracted by off-field exuberant antics that later culminated in distracting him from focusing diligently in the game he is destined to rule as a black-genius.
His most distracting moment was when he had a famous transfer to the PREMIERSHIP, to play for MANCHESTER CITY FC on a very high transfer fee above 20 million pounds. Despite, his talented displays in the field of play, he was engaged in a lot of “off-field” tricks that affected his football prowess that even led him to display a T-shirt, he wore under his jersey, after scoring in a local derby match against Manchester United, boldly written “WHY ALWAYS ME”, a saying that went viral in the world of football, and remains popular till today. As a result of these antics/distractions, his stay at Manchester City was short lived and had to be sold to A/C Milan back in Italy. Here his talents knew no bounds after scoring lots of goals despite distractions; he even had Italian National Team invitation, where he equally excelled. Furthermore, he had a recall to the PREMIERSHIP. This time around at ANFIELD, to play under Coach BRENDAN RODGERS for the sum of £15million pounds transfer contract of 2 years. Unfortunately, he did not make much impact at LIVERPOOL F.C in Anfield, England and had to solicit a loan transfer move back to Italy at AC MILAN, his old club. Thus, off-field distractions coupled with loss of form, AC Milan refused to retain him and sent him back to LIVERPOOL F.C after the loan-spell expired. Suffice to emphasise here that this black talent almost lost it at Liverpool F.C because the new German Coach Jorgen Klopp refused to absorb him and sold him out to a low rated FRENCH CLUB CALLED NICE.
Like the proverbial saying this prodigal son of football with all the talent and features of a natural striker had the opportunity to rejuvenate his foot balling career on a platter of gold. Luckily for him, his football prowess rejuvenated in France where he scored lot of goals and even helped NICE F.C to qualify for “EUROPA” League for the first time in their football history. He later left NICE F.C after some little skirmishes and joined the famous French foot-ball giants “OLYMPIC MARSEILLE” F.C where he scored close to seven goals in a season. Nevertheless, the contract with Olympic Marseille F.C was short lived because energetic Mario Balotelli is now out of contract and seeking for a new challenge in this new football season.
Furthermore, his football agent, the famous Italian MINO RIOLA, has promised a new club and viable transfer season but what matters most is that Creekvibes analytical team advices this amiable but radical football talent to maintains a level headed focus in his career so that he can achieve greater heights in the game God has blessed him with (fame, materials) among others.
