Jose Mourinho and Mario Balotelli

Mourinho holds surprise talks with Liverpool striker

If you have clicked on this news looking for a juicy transfer gossip, then you are going to end up disappointed.

Nevertheless, according to Italian website Calcio Mercato, United manager Jose Mourinho recently held a meeting with Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli to give him some career counselling.

It should be noted that the Italian striker played under Mourinho during his time with Inter Milan and shared a hot-and-cold relationship with the Portuguese.

The report mentions that Mourinho advised the striker to lower his demands in order to get a move of his liking and also to change his attitude.

Balotelli, who was considered one of the most talented strikers in world football at one point, has seemed to self-destruct his career over the years.

He joined Liverpool in the summer of 2014 but managed to score only one goal in 16 league appearances. Last summer, he joined his old club AC Milan on a loan move, but even that move failed to resurrect his career.

Now, he finds himself unwanted at Liverpool, with a very limited number of clubs ready take a chance on him.

At 26 years of age, time is running out for Balotelli if he wants to fulfil his potential and he needs to make sure that the next move in his career is a right one for him.
