Jose Mourinho has reportedly met with Mario Balotelli to offer the Liverpool striker advice on how to revive his career.
Italian outlet Calciomercato say the duo, who worked together for a short time at Inter Milan, met for an “informal meeting” over the last few days.
It is claimed Mourinho told Balotelli he must change his attitude if he is to make a success of himself and finally realise his lofty potential.
At just 26 years old, the Italian striker has already played for Inter and AC Milan, as well as Manchester City and current club Liverpool, who no longer want him at Anfield.
Unsurprisingly, the meeting didn’t involve Mourinho propositioning Balotelli about a move to Manchester United.
Balotelli, who joined Liverpool in 2014 for £16million, is unwanted at the club by manager Jurgen Klopp and the German wants to ship him out before the transfer window closes in just over two weeks’ time.
The Italian forward spent last season on loan at AC Milan but the Rossoneri opted against making the move permanent.
He returned to Melwood earlier in the summer to commence pre-season training with Liverpool but he has no future on Merseyside.
