Intriguing quotes from Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola.
Mario Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola admits his client is having a dreadful run of form at Liverpool this season and that he is massively disappointed with how things have gone at Anfield, the Liverpool Echo reports.
However, he will not be leaving the club unless a huge offer comes in for him, and Raiola believes injuries have disrupted his progress as he tries to settle into an unfamiliar system in Brendan Rodgers’ side.
“The plan is to continue at Anfield,” Raiola explained.
“I saw him Monday and told him: ‘You have a four-year contract and I won’t bring you away. Or you leave Liverpool for 60-70 million (euros), and I won my bet, or you’ll die there’.
“It’s the first time I have made a speech like that to a player. I’ve seen him quiet, changed, different than (when he was at) Milan. Very disappointed with himself, too.
“He’s going through a bad time like he never had before.
“In Liverpool he hasn’t his spaces: if you don’t make things as they want, you stay out (of the team). Then he was out for eight weeks, he lost the rhythm.”
