Favre has Balotelli hope

Nice Coach Lucien Favre wants Mario Balotelli to replicate Sunday night’s debut performance against Marseille.

The Italy international scored two goals in a 3-2 win for his new side, having moved to the south of France after a difficult two years at Liverpool.

“Balotelli now has a new job!” Favre told reporters after the match at Allianz Riviera.

“Tonight was hard for the Coaches. At a certain stage we allowed Marseille to create too many chances, but by the end it was us who were doing more.

“I hope that Balotelli replicates tonight’s performance, this Nice team is an advert for football.”
