Mario Balotelli is one of the most polemic players of the last decades. And that has a lot to do with his rise and fall. He was extremely talented, and teared up Serie A with Inter when he came up into the first team. Then, the moves to Manchester City, AC Milan and Liverpool, something that meant many millions in his bank account.
He earned 110,000 euro per week at Liverpool, and that money he got in his career was spent in parties, expensive cars and many other eccentricities. But his peak stopped right there and after bad performances and indiscipline, he joined teams with a lower reputation, moving to France and then back to Italy.
And last December, he joined AC Monza, in Italian second division after widely winning Serie C. At that club Balotelli, who is 30 years old now, will earn 220,000 euros per year according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. In his new club he will earn in a year the same amount he did in two weeks in Liverpool.
He had been sacked from his loved club Brescia for not going to train and troubles with the president, and now he will try to give his career the last boosts. But he must be careful of not spending more than he should, because his lifestyle puts him at risk of ending up in bankruptcy.
