Nice boss Lucien Favre takes aim at Mario Balotelli in press conference: “I should’ve taken him off earlier.”

Speaking to reporters in the post-match press conference following Nice’s 2-0 loss to Napoli in the Champions’ League qualifier 2nd leg tie, which ensured that Les Aiglons would be playing Europa League football again this season, Lucien Favre took aim at Italian striker Mario Balotelli.

“It came a bit early for Sneijder, and Mario was not really in the game… I don’t really want to talk about him. I should’ve taken him off much faster, he did not run enough, he did not put enough effort in.”
