Mido: Balotelli will lose focus really soon

Mario Balotelli

Former Marseille and Spurs striker Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ has sounded his opinion on Italy and OGC Nice striker Mario Balotelli’s Ligue 1 debut.

The Euro 2012 runner-up enjoyed what could be his rebirth after scoring two goals on his debut to help his side beat Marseille 3-2.

The 26-year-old striker spent a disastrous season at Anfield, scoring just one goal in 16 appearances for Liverpool, before being sent to Milan on loan in hopes of rediscovering his eye for goal.

However, an injury and a series of poor performances were enough for Jurgen Klopp to publicly exclude Balotelli from Liverpool’s plans for the 2016-2017 season. Balotelli went on to complete a deadline day move to the French top-flight as a free transfer.

Current beIN sports pundit Mido was quick to claim that Balotelli’s rebirth will not last for long, and his form will eventually drop.

“I think that Balotelli will play well for the next five games and then he will go back to his old mindless and foolish habits,” said Mido.

“I like Balotelli’s frivolous character, but I am against what he’s doing because it is affecting his footballing career,” he claimed.
