Maybe because the Adana Demirspor is far away?
In the frustrating career category, Mario Balotelli is arguably at the top of the list. After a freelance at Monza until last July, Super Mario is now stuck in the middle of the table of the Turkish championship with the club of Demirspor. It’s hard today to imagine seeing the striker one day at his best. His brother, Enock Barwuah, does not despair and has also spoken about a possible return of Balotelli in Nazionale in the columns of Corriere dello Sport : “He hasn’t played for Italy for four years and yet he has scored more than many others. Imagine if he had played. I think someone like him should always be called out, and I’m not saying that because he’s my brother. For a team that has such a hard time scoring, he would be ideal. »

Asked about the causes of his brother’s absence from the selection, Barwuah has his own idea. “I think it’s because of someone from the group. Someone who cannot stand his strong character. I have an idea of who it is ” , explains the person, ensuring that « Mancini always loved and respected him, but made him play when he was less well » . Balotelli no longer donned the jersey azzurro since March 2018, in a draw (1-1) against Poland.
