Mario Balotelli scored a brace in OGC Nice’s 3-2 victory over Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1 — the perfect response to the criticism directed at him by Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher. Twitter was quick to remind Carragher about what he had said of Balotelli when he left Anfield.
The Italian striker joined Nice on a free transfer from Liverpool on transfer deadline day, with former Reds defender Jamie Carragher declaring it a poor deal for the French club.
Balotelli on a free is still paying over the odds by Nice.

However, the Sky Sports pundit’s words have come back to haunt him as Balotelli scored a brace on his debut for Nice, leading them to victory against Marseille. Fans on twitter took the opportunity to ask Carragher for his thoughts on the Italian’s performance.
Thoughts on Balotelli’s debut? @Carra23

I hope Balotelli goes home and spends hours tagging Jamie Carragher in every single tweet about his brace

Balotelli to score 20 + goals this season move to PSG, win them the CL single handedly and have Carragher present him the ballon dor.
