The Italian coach says he “will hold a talk with Balotelli” to evaluate his attitude. Ventura is satisfied with his performance in Nice, but wants to know “other factors”.
The good performances of Mario Balotelli at Olympique Nice have reopened the doors of the Italian team, so at least assured his coach, Giampiero Ventura. The trainer ‘azzurro’, in an interview with the FIFA website, speaks clearly about the striker. “I’m going to have a talk with him to understand his desire to be. We’re not closed to anyone,” says Ventura.
Despite that talk, Ventura takes into account the past of the player. Balotelli is two years without being called by the selection, therefore, Ventura does not cut short when he states that he will take into account many other factors before making a decision. “It has been important for Nice, I have never doubted their ability, but with Mario there are other aspects to take into account.”
