Lucien Favre, the coach of Nice, said that he had been very pleased with the performance that had Mario Balotelli in his team.
Unlike his president, Lucien Favre, was somewhat skeptical after the announcement of the arrival of Mario Balotelli to Nice. The technician switzerland was not sure that the Italian star could fit in the collective project of the Eaglets. Finally, and despite a few episodes of complicated, the old Milanese has done more than meet the expectations of the side from the Allianz Riviera.

“No contact Dortmund-Favre”
“He has scored even 15 goals. In the beginning, all the world was asking the question : is this going to work ? This was not easy to bet on it.

But, it has made progress, notably in the placement. He pressed very high in the loss of the ball. Which is quite extraordinary for him.”
Favre has pulled the hat to his star striker, but he has also encouraged them not to relax, continue on the same path and try to erase the “few flaws” that he still has. “There are matches where it was in the collective, and others do not. It would take some time and also try to convince him more. He is only 26 years old. One can imagine the 6.7 years of career in front of him. But, it is necessary to take the positive side. In the end, I found that it was therefore a very good idea (of the recruit)”.
