Nice star Mario Balotelli shows off daring new hairstyle

Safe to say, Mario Balotelli has not enjoyed a particularly impressive start to his second season at OGC Nice, with questions lingering over his commitment to the cause.

Indeed, after scoring 26 goals in 38 appearances for the Ligue 1 side last campaign. the Italian striker is yet to open his account in five outings so far this year and as such has found himself rotated in and out of the first-team frame.

Fans and critics have also pointed to an apparent lack of fitness after Balotelli dipped...

Mario Balotelli still short of fitness after preseason no-show - Nice's Patrick Vieira

Patrick Vieira has told Mario Balotelli he must lose more weight before he can get back to his best form for Nice and begin to play regularly.

The Brazil forward was caught by Wylan Cyprien's flailing arm as they contested the ball near the hour mark of an otherwise one-sided contest.

Cyprien was sent off for a second yellow card, and Neymar sat down for a while and had a little blood wiped from his mouth with a sponge. He got up and carried on, playing on for several minutes as he ran around with the...
