Mario Balotelli makes his opinion of Jose Mourinho known

Liverpool-owned AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli worked with sacked Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Liverpool-owned striker Mario Balotelli has made it clear on Instagram what he thinks about sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was dismissed by Chelsea on Thursday following disappointing results in the Premier League all season.

Balotelli, who joined his former club AC Milan on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, worked with the Portuguese at Inter Milan.

The Italy international has taken to Instagram to hail Mourinho, who has also managed FC Porto and Real Madrid in his career so far (see post above).

Balotelli joined Liverpool from Milan in the summer of 2014, but he failed to make a big impact at Anfield last season.

The 25-year-old striker could score just one goal and created seven chances in 16 Premier League appearances for the Reds last season.

So far this campaign, the Italian has scored one goal and created nine chance in four Serie A games for Milan.
