At 32, he is coming off a successful season in Turkey at Adana Demirspor.
Mario Balotelli continues to crisscross Europe and is about to know the 11th club of his career. This Wednesday, FC Sion formalized the arrival of the 32-year-old Italian striker, who has signed up for the next two seasons. The transfer is estimated at just over 2.5 million euros.
“Super Mario” is coming off a rather successful season at Adana Demirspor, promoted to the Turkish first division and where he signed up for three years last summer. The Italian has scored 18 goals there in 31 league games, but has also recently had a row on the pitch with manager Vincenzo Montella . But since leaving Nice in January 2019, he has not been able to stabilize in a club.
He will find an Italian coach and Wylan Cyprien
After six rather positive months at Olympique de Marseille , where he ultimately did not stay, Mario Balotelli went on to three seasons at Brescia (Serie A), Monza (Serie B) and therefore at Adana Demirspor.
FC Sion is currently 6th out of 10 clubs in the Swiss first division and struggled last season to maintain itself. Balotelli will find there an Italian coach, Paolo Tramezzani, and a former teammate in Nice, Wylan Cyprien, on loan from Parma.
