Belhanda hails Nice teammate Balotelli: Just like Ibrahimovic

Nice midfielder Younes Belhanda has hailed the impact of Mario Balotelli this season.

Balotelli has been in sensational form since his arrival from Liverpool last summer.

Belhanda said, "It's scary to see Mario Balotelli in front of you. The teams are noticing him. In two league games, he's scored two doubles so he's changed it dramatically.

"It is true that when you have Balotelli in front of you it is something! Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli are talented players, internationally recognized. So when you have a player of that calibre playing against you, you still have a little pressure."
