REUNION? Ex-Man City striker linked with move away from rebuilding AC Milan claims feud with the Special One “turned into a mutual respect, and now a real friendship”
AC Milan’s Mario Ballotelli has hinted at a future move to Chelsea as he claimed that he would like to work with Jose Mourinho again. The striker was asked if the problem between the pair had cooled but, Super Mario’s answers were surprising and one that hints at a possible transfer to Chelsea. The pair had infamously fallen off against each other during their time at Inter Milan.
But, even since, even Mourinho has claimed he liked his character and joked with CNN presenter Pedro in a special ‘masterclass’ interview done in Jose’s last season at Real Madrid. But, would Mario want to play under the current Blues’ boss? here is the answer…
Balotelli said: “Of course I would like to play under Jose again. In my first days at Inter we had some problems, but then it turned into a mutual respect, and now we have a real friendship.
“It is never boring playing under Jose. When you are in Mourinho’s team it is a family and he coaches on the principal that if all is well with the family it doesn’t matter what is going on outside the team.”
Ironically, that season was the last for both Mourinho and Ballotelli who seeked adventure in different countries. But, Jose’s time has come to settle at a club. But, is it time for Ballotelli to make a big move back to England and form a formidable and charismatic partnership with Mourinho at Chelsea?
