Mario Balotelli celebrated his winner against SPAL on the comeback of coach Eugenio Corini. “The only thing in my mind is saving Brescia.”
Corini was sacked a month ago, but Fabio Grosso lasted only three games – all defeats without scoring a single goal.
“We really had to suffer for this, but it’s about time we got a win,” SuperMario told DAZN.
“We’d tried and come close in even tougher matches than this, but were not lucky. There are another three important games, we hope to do well before the Christmas break.
“It’s always exciting to score goals, especially in front of the fans.”
Balotelli was asked if he hopes to score enough goals to get back into the Italy squad for Euro 2020.
“Everyone wants to play in the Euros, but the only thing in my mind right now is saving Brescia. It’s my 50th Serie A goal, I dedicate it to my children.”
