Jamie Carragher has finally responded to Mario Balotelli's Twitter snipe in his direction, with the Liverpool legend offering up a predictably feisty repost to the outspoken Italian striker
Carragher was an outspoken critic of Ballotelli during his woeful two-year stint at Liverpool and he continued his line of attack after the maverick hit-man joined French side Nice on a free transfer last Wednesday.
His tweet suggesting Ligue 1 side Nice had paid too much to sign Balotelli even though they had not paid a transfer fee was summed up in this brilliantly provocative message from Sky Sports pundit Carragher.
Now Carragher has poked fun at Balotelli's claims that he has dreams of winning FIFA's Ballon d'Or prize that is awarded to the world’s best player with this loaded tweet, following his move to one of the lesser lights of French football.
Now Carragher has poked fun at Balotelli's previous claims that he has dreams of being crowned as the world's best player by winning FIFA's Ballon d'Or prize, as he gets used to life with one of the less celebrated clubs in French football.
