Balotelli: My Biggest Regret As A Footballer

Italy striker, Mario Balotelli, has disclosed that the he made a huge mistake leaving Man City for AC Milan in 2013.

“I think that was my biggest mistake, to leave [Manchester] City,” Balotelli told Athletic.

“Even in the year when I left, I played very well in AC Milan for a year and a half, but after that, I had some problems. And now that I am older, I know that I should not have left City at that time.

    Big talent, empty manners. I love mario and I prayed that he realises himself earlier, but he didn’t. what a waste!
    Its too late to cry when the head is off.

  • At least he is honest.That alone makes him a hero. You’ve achieved alot in spite of your childishness and your honest confession will go along way to helping other young stars understand that its better to be level-headed while you are young and dynamic so as to achieve your optimum. Focus in the future and let the past remain where it is right now.
