Conte Believes Balotelli Will Give His All for Italy

Not having a best start to his new season with Liverpool, Mario Balotelli has been called up into Italy national team setup by Antonio Conte for their upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Croatia next Sunday.

Although the timing of Balotelli’s call raises some question, Conte doesn’t have much concern with it as he has strong confidence that the former AC Milan man will give his all for Gli Azzurri, despite yet to produce something special for Liverpool.

Conte also stated that Balotelli’s status as The Reds’ starter is already a good enough reason to give call him up, especially since the tactician was also forced to use several names who are not even starts because of injuries and other reasons.

Despite giving Balotelli a chance, Conte isn’t ensuring any playing time yet for the Italian international as the former Juventus tactician is keen on seeing how things are going first before making his decision.
