Yoan Cardinale: “When Mario Balotelli arrived, he was very negative about Ligue 1.”

Speaking to our colleagues at RMC, OGC Nice goalkeeper Yoan Cardinale discussed the arrival and subsequent transformation of Mario Balotelli as the Italian striker adapts to the French game.

“At the beginning, when he arrived, he would tell us a lot of negative things about Ligue 1, that he had heard bad things about this league. But as he started to play in matches, he told us that he was not expecting this, that he did not expect it to be so difficult, that the defenders were so strong defensively. It is true that he was completely surprised by the level of the league.”
