As expected, Olympique Marseille have confirmed the departure of Italy striker Mario Balotelli.
Balotelli joined Marseille in January on a contract until the end of the season and scored eight goals in 15 Ligue 1 appearances.
However, the French side are clearing the decks, starting with former Roma boss Rudi Garcia making way for Andre Villas-Boas.
“The striker’s position needs filling, since Mario Balotelli will not continue his adventure with L’OM,” President Jacques-Henri Eyraud told L’Equipe.
