Mario Balotelli has reportedly turned down an offer from Saudi Arabia.
This controversial Italian footballer stated that everyone went to Arabia for money.
The former player of Inter, Manchester City, Milan, Liverpool, Nice, Marseille, Brescia, Monza, Adana, who has been playing for Sion since 2022, believes that footballers go to Saudi Arabia for money.
Regarding the large number of European players who went to Saudi Arabia, Balotelli said: “I only listen to these footballers who went to Saudi Arabia saying that they didn’t do it for money. I just don’t know how they can say such a thing. Well, what did you go there for then? I’m not sure they would have ended up in Asia if they got the same money as they did in Europe.”
Mario Balotelli also commented on Ronaldo’s statement that the Saudi league will be one of the five strongest in Europe.
“Cristiano is a great player and I respect his opinion, but I don’t think so. A large number of great players go to Arabia, like they went to China a few years ago, and the Chinese league has never become as good as the Premier League. I myself get a lot in those years money to go, but I didn’t want to. I always wanted to be in Europe.”
