Nigerian professional football club Warri Wolves FC have indicated interest in Italian and Liverpool striker, Mario Balotelli.
The Seasiders who are currently 17th on the current Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) standings are desperate to avoid relegation, but their searchlight for a striker has beamed on 'Super Mario'.
In a tweet via the official Twitter handle of the club, the Warri-based team invited the 26-year-old player to join the squad.
"Hello Mario Balotelli we have 10 games to play before our season ends. You can come train with us and play for us," @Warri_Wolves_FC tweeted.
Meanwhile, Italian legend Andrea Pirlo has advised Balotelli to stop wasting his talent. The 37-year-old has expressed sadness at the player who is on loan at AC Milan, saying the clock is ticking for him to save his career.
"He frustrates me, but I do have so much affection for Mario," the Milan and Juventus legend was quoted by Mirror (UK).
"He is infectious to be around. When I used to see him walk into training for Italy, he would have this big smile on his face – and I would just burst out laughing – and start wondering what is he thinking, what is he up to?
"Mario should not just be a character the media write about for good stories. We shouldn't forget what a special player he is.
"I have played with some of the best strikers, and I can tell you Mario has all the attributes to be one of the best strikers in the world.
"By now I thought that is where he would be, that is where he should be. He has no more time to waste."
