Lupa Castelli, an Italian football club who plies their trade in Lega Pro, the third tier of Italian football, has come to the rescue of Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, whether he wants to be rescued by them is another story!
The rumors of the striker leaving Anfield after just one year at the club have been rife all summer and the situation worsened for the Italian after Brendan Rodgers reportedly offered no guarantees that he will remain at the club during a recent presser.
President of Lupa Castelli, Marco Amelia spoke to Sky Italia about his desire to bring the troubled striker back to Italy.
“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.”
“For Balotelli, this could be the first step towards cleaning up his act, taking two steps back and showing everyone what he is capable of doing.”
“Six months here would be useful to him to start the path of purification. He must regain humility and enthusiasm that allowed him to break into football matters when he was starting out.”
“It will be difficult, almost impossible, but I will try anyway. I hope that the importance of the city of Rome and our friendship helps me.”
“I’ll try to call Mario Balotelli. On an economic point of view, we’ll see what happens. I think that at this time Mario needs to find the will he needs to compete.”
“It will be tough, it will be almost impossible as it is something that football has never seen, but he could do it.”
Balotelli was signed by Liverpool from AC Milan last summer for £16m and scored just four times for the Reds.
