Raiola launches fresh attack at Klopp over Balotelli

The super-agent insists that the Liverpool manager failed to treat his client with respect during the summer before disregarding the German’s talents as a coach

Mino Raiola has launched a fresh attack on Jurgen Klopp following Mario Balotelli’s Liverpool exit.

The striker ended his disastrous spell at Anfield with a free transfer to Nice on deadline day, having been excluded from first-team affairs at Liverpool after returning from a poor loan spell at former club AC Milan.

Raiola subsequently called Klopp out for treating his client “like s***” and the super-agent has now hit out at the German’s lack of respect.

“At the end of the day, [Balotelli] was a player of Liverpool and you need to treat him with respect and [Klopp] didn’t do that,” Raiola told talkSPORT.

“Mario asked several times to have a friendly match. You can train all you want but, at the end of the day, you need 90 minutes, you need a friendly. He never considered him for 60 days.

“I’m not judging him as a trainer – I don’t like him as a trainer at all – but you have to let him play.”
