‘No Balotelli at Salford’ claims agent
Agent of Enoch Balotelli has strenuously denied claims that his client has signed for non league side, Salford City, claiming he is ‘only training with the squad to maintain his fitness’; despite the club releasing the news on their official site.
Balotelli raised a few eyebrows last week after reportedly penning a deal at Salford, who currently lie ninth in the Northern Premier League First Division North.
The player’s representative claims Balotelli is at Salford in preparation for trials at higher clubs – believed to be in League One and Two.
Timpani told Sky Sports of the youngster, who spent time on trial at Stoke, Sunderland and Watfordlast season:
“It is not correct that he has signed for Salford. He is simply training with them to keep fit.
“It’s something that Mario arranged for him in preparation for forthcoming trials that our English partner Dan Fletcher is in the process of organising for him.”
