'Balotelli's best yet to come'

Olympique Marseille’s President believes Mario Balotelli’s best ‘is yet to come’ after the striker’s goalscoring start in southern France.

Balotelli joined Marseille from Ligue 1 rivals Nice last month and scored on his debut against Lille, although the Italy international could not prevent a 2-1 defeat.

“I’m very happy with Mario’s arrival, he’s a player I really wanted at Olympique Marseille and I’m not the only one,” Jacques-Henry Eyraud told Foot Mercato.

“I’m very happy with his arrival, he’s integrated into the team perfectly. He scored in his first few minutes on the field.

“It was a great source of satisfaction for him, as well as us and all the OM fans. I think his best is yet to come.”
