Italy striker, Mario Balotelli has come out to say that he could have been Italy’s matchwinner vs North Macedonia. He recently revealed that he could’ve delivered the goods had he been selected for their World Cup playoff, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the fact is that he is always missed when the country loses, and with the chances missed in that game, his presence would surely have been felt.
Balotelli, however, added that Mancini has done a great job and he deserves to continue as Italy manager.
His words, “I’m always missed when we lose,”
“It’s easy to say it now but before the match no one thought about me.”
“I watched the match and there were were opportunities. In front of goal I’m pretty good and I’m not saying we would have won if I had been playing but there were opportunities to score.”
On Mancini, “I haven’t spoken to him, but I have a great relationship with the manager and am so happy he is staying, especially as, in just a few years as manager he is already a European champion.”
“It’s OK that people are disappointed or sad because of the failed qualification, it hurts that we are not going to Qatar but you can’t forget that, in just a short time, the manager led a team that was, yes, strong, but that no one expected [to win] to the Euro 2020 title.”
“Mancini has done a great job. He deserves to continue and I am happy he is staying.”
