The Mario Balotelli story at Liverpool ended with a whimper earlier this week when the controversial striker was allowed to leave on a free transfer to Ligue 1 side Nice.
Now that Balotelli doesn’t have to worry about reprecussions from Liverpool, he’s letting loose on social media about all the negative things that have been said about him.
Today’s main target: Former Liverpool great, Jamie Carragher
Carragher had this to say on Twitter about Balotelli’s move to France:
Balotelli on a free is still paying over the odds by Nice.— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) August 31, 2016
This was undoubtedly a cheap shot at Balo and one that was uncalled for, but Twitter is Twitter and banter for the sake of likes and retweets is just part of the social media world we live in these days.
However, "Super Mario" didn’t take too kindly to the jab and got some help from a graphic designer for his response:
Congrats, Jamie! You’ve been awarded the honorable Mario Balotell "Best Hater" award for your great bantz.
Anyways, the response was obviously coming. At least it wasn’t vulgar and had a playful sense about it. It could’ve been a lot worse.
Hopefully this is the last incident between Mario and his former team. Both need to move on about their seasons/careers and focus on themselves.
