The midfielder was critical of the Italy international, suggesting that the former Liverpool striker has lost interest in playing for the Ligue 1 side

Nice midfielder Valentin Eysseric is unhappy with team-mate Mario Balotelli, claiming the maligned Italian forward "looks like he wants nothing to do with us".

'Balotelli lets his head go down too easily'

Balotelli was absent for Sunday's 2-2 Ligue 1 draw at Rennes due to flu symptoms, having been a substitute against Saint-Etienne last week.

And after having been critical of the former Liverpool striker, insisting the 26-year-lets his head go down too easily, Eysseric stood by his comments at Roazhon Park.

"I'm sorry, but I was honest," he told BeIN Sports. "I told the truth.

"It is a shame he lets his head drop, you see him in training every day. He's such a great player.

"I think he looks like he wants nothing to do with us. It's really disappointing. We could've really used his help in a game like this.

"We know the coach demands enormous effort from his squad. He won't accept anyone taking their foot off the gas and you saw that with Mario Balotelli."

Since arriving at Nice on a free transfer, Balotelli has scored nine goals in 13 Ligue 1 appearances.
