Former Liverpool player, Mario Balotelli has stated that Nice fans are the best he has ever played for.
The Italy international has been warmly welcomed on the Cote d’Azur after arriving from Liverpool on transfer deadline day, and while the Reds are regarded as having one of the best fanbases in world football, the striker reckons the supporters at Allianz Riviera are better than those at Anfield.
“Frankly, of all the club’s I’ve played at, these supporters generate the best atmosphere I’ve ever seen,” he told Telefoot.
Moreover, he is delighted that he has quickly been able to make himself at home.
“It’s cool. I’m happy when people like me,” he continued.
