Newcastle Make Move For Mario Balotelli

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 · 214 Comments

There’s news today that Newcastle are interested in signing Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli on loan for next season.

The 24 year-old Italian International  seemed to be a lot of trouble for Liverpool last season, and Mario did not have a good time of it at all on Merseyside.

The 33 times capped International (13 goals)  scored only 4 goals in 26 appearances last season, and he was not a good replacement for Luis Suarez who had joined Barcelona last summer and ended up winning the Champions League.

Steve McClaren has given an interview on nufcTV with Newcastle Digital Editor Dan King, after he had finished his first day of pre-season training with the Newcastle players yesterday, although those who have been on International duty don’t report back until Monday.

It’s the first time we have heard from Steve for about 10 days, and he comes across as really sensible, down to earth and seems to be in his element coaching the players on the training pitch.
