This Italian Third Tier Side Really Think They Can Lure Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli Home

Lega Pro side ASD Lupa Castelli want to take Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli on a six-month loan.

The tiny Italian side compete in the country’s third tier and were only formed a mere two years ago.

But the club’s president Marco Amelia believes the Italy international would benefit from a temporary move back home and his side are apparently the perfect team to provide it.

“Our intention is to bring our friend, Balotelli, here, a player who at this time needs to start afresh because we see that he does not want to play anymore, has fans opposing him and is no longer able to show his quality,” Amelia told Sky Italia.

“For Balotelli, this could be the first step towards cleaning up his act, taking two steps back and showing everyone what he is capable of doing.”

Lupa Castelli, who are based in Lazio, play in a 5,000 capacity stadium and have won promotion twice in two seasons, but Amelia is realistic about his club’s chances of signing Balotelli.

He concluded: “Six months here would be useful to him to start the path of purification. He must regain humility and enthusiasm that allowed him to break into football matters when he was starting out.”
