The harsh welcome to Balotelli

Monza played this Monday against Brescia and at Mario Rigamonti they had prepared a banner for SuperMario. "To us, you are worth nothing."


"There are players who have loved this city. For us, you are worth nothing, you are a man without dignity." These words appeared on a banner outside the 'Stadio Mario Rigamonti' in Italian Brescia. Its objective? Mario Balotelli. Monza, SuperMario's new team, visited the forward's former team on Monday and the La Leonessa fans made it clear that they had not forgotten his abrupt departure from the club. Even though the player was not available for the match due to a strained left thigh flexors.

The bad relationship with the board, the absences in training and the bad attitude accelerated the goodbye of a Balotelli that would be fired in June. In his time at Brescia, he scored five goals in 20 games, but it is clear that the residue left among the fans is not the many with the biancazurra, but the controversial final.

Released with and without Mario

Berlusconi's Monza, which also features an old rocker like Kevin-Prince Boateng, rescued the battering ram from ostracism and allowed him to wear short again. So far, our protagonist has only been able to play one match with the Biancorossi, in which he didn't take long to see the goal (he scored after four minutes), by the way.

However, the understandable initial set-up and the physical problems mentioned have not allowed him to continue adding playing time. Promotion to Serie A is the sole objective of this ambitious project and, for the moment, it is on the right track: Monza is second, behind Lecce, in Serie B.
