– Mario Balotelli says he never like Liverpool as a club
– Balotelli moved to the Reds in 2014 from AC Milan
– The striker joined Nice from Liverpool in a free transfer
Nice striker Mario Balotelli says joining Liverpool back in 2014 was the “worst decision of my life”.
The Italian scored a mere four goals in 28 appearances for the Reds after arriving for £16m from AC Milan with the striker failing to settle under Brendan Rodgers or Jurgen Klopp.
He returned to Milan on loan last season, scoring one goal in 20 Serie A games before a free transfer to Nice this summer.

“Apart from the fans, who were fantastic, and some players who I got on really well with, I didn’t like the club,” Balotelli told Canal Plus when asked about his time at Liverpool.
The 26-year-old had just scored twice on his Nice debut in the 3-2 Ligue 1 win over Marseille on Sunday.
“I had two coaches, with Rodgers and Klopp for a short time, but neither their methods nor their personality left me with a good impression,” he said.
“I never really felt right there.”
Victory lifted Nice into second in the table, behind leaders Monaco on goal difference, with champions Paris St-Germain in seventh.
