Raiola: Liverpool boss Klopp didn't treat Balotelli like a human being

Super agent Mino Raiola has again attacked Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp over his treatment of Mario Balotelli.

Raiola is hoping Balotelli can rebuild his career at Nice in France.

He told the Daily Mail: “Mario and Jurgen Klopp never had a chance because Klopp never gave him a chance. I said Klopp acted like a piece of **** towards him and he can't deny he made Mario an outcast.

“I had experience with Klopp at Dortmund. He can't tell people that he treated Mario like a human being at Liverpool.

“If you want to sell him it's up to you but he is still a Liverpool player and, while he is, show him respect. He needed 90 minutes in friendlies but he trained outside the first team. What did he do wrong in the last two years?

“Mario said he made a mistake joining Liverpool. I don't regret choosing Liverpool although I'm not sure Brendan Rodgers wanted him."
