Speaking to Téléfoot, Italian striker and OGC Nice frontman Mario Balotelli commented on the quality of the French top flight.
“Ligue 1 is difficult. When I arrived here, I thought that it would be much easier to be honest. Not because I saw myself as better, but because I had heard that the French league was not like England or Italy. Ok, yes it is not the same, but is difficult. The levels will become closer and closer.”
