Swiss Side FC Sion Terminates Mario Balotelli’s Contract; Surprising Return to Former Club on the Horizon

Mario Balotelli has reportedly had his contract terminated at Swiss club Sion after just one season – and now he is linked with a former club.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker was training alone at the start of this season after Sion were relegated.

He scored six goals in 19 games last season but now the Italian has had his contracted terminated by mutual consent. 

Christian Constantin, president of Sion, said: ‘Everything was resolved in a very courteous way with Mario. The document we have prepared is now in the hands of our lawyers who will have to formalize it.’

Now a free agent, the 33-year-old could re-sign with former club Adana Demirspor, as per Corriere dello Sport

However, Turkish side Adana Demirspor, an old club of Balotelli’s, could offer a lifeline 

Adana Demirspor are at an exciting juncture in their history with Patrick Kluivert in charge. 

The club finished fourth in the Turkish Super Lig last season under Vincenzo Montella and moved into a new stadium in 2021. 

Balotelli previously joined them in the summer of 2021 and scored 19 goals as he fired the club to a top-half finish in their first season back in the top flight. 

He left at the start of last season to move to Sion in what turned out to be an ill-fated campaign for the Swiss club, who finished bottom to go down after 17 seasons in the Swiss Super League. 

Across a career which has taken him through the heights Serie A and the Premier League, winning the highest domestic and European honours, Balotelli has become a cult hero but struggled to fulfil his abundant potential.
