Balotelli frustrated as Monza failed to achieve Serie A promotion

Fri 21 May 2021 | 19:29

Cittadella will face Venezia in the Serie B promotion play-off final, as despite losing 2-0 with Mario Balotelli on target, they beat Monza 3-2 on aggregate.

Former Italy international

Mario Balotelli

will have to decide on his future at the Serie B side after his side failed to achieve promotion to Serie A.

The 30-year-old striker was on target as

Cristian Brocchi

’s men were looking to make back-to-back leaps up the league ladder at the Stadio Brianteo, but their 3-0 first-leg defeat against

Roberto Venturato

’s side proved too much to overcome.

The striker arrived at the newly-promoted outfit in December on a six-month deal after leaving Nice.

Balotelli, in part, returned to reunite with several figures from his days with Milan, including owner and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, along with ex-coach Cristian Brocchi.

With only a short-term deal signed, questions around Balotelli's future will arise, but

Monza

will aim to go one better next term.

He has made over twelve appearances for the club including both play-off matches and has scored six goals helping his side challenge for Serie A promotion.
