The former Liverpool defender criticised the Italian after he joined Nice from the Reds earlier this week, and the striker took to Twitter to respond
Mario Balotelli has slammed ‘bad player’ Jamie Carragher after the ex-Liverpool defender poked fun at the Italian striker’s move to Nice.
Balotelli joined the Ligue 1 outfit from the Reds earlier this week after a miserable two years on the books at Anfield.
Carragher quipped that Nice had paid over the odds by signing Balotelli on a free transfer, but the former Manchester City and Milan striker has hit back at the Sky Sports pundit.

Carragher has been critical of Balotelli in the past, telling the Daily Mail in March: “I can’t believe we signed Mario Balotelli! The thing with Balotelli is everyone always says it’s the off-the-field antics, but I wouldn’t care if he was doing it on the pitch.
“People tell me he’s got talent but I can’t remember him having a good game.”
