Mario with brother Enoch

Sunderland have reportedly been offered the once in a life time opportunity to sign Balotelli – Enoch Balotelli! Mario’s younger brother who was at Stoke only a few months ago has arrived on Wearside to be put through his paces after failing to secure a contract with Tony Pulis’ men. Enoch, who currently lives with his brother in Cheshire, is keen to show his talent. However Sunderland want to see how he does on trial first after Stoke staff called him “raw”.




Balotelli has been playing for the Stoke City reserves for the last three-weeks – Enoch Balotelli that is! The 19-year old younger brother of Mario, who is also a striker, played for 80minutes against West Bromich Albion’s reserves before being taken off with a cramp. Stoke’s academy coach Dave Kevan said after the game that “He’s been with training with us for a while and it was good to give him a run out. He’s a good boy but a little bit raw at the moment. We’ll see how things go”. Meanwhile local media said Enoch had shown “a deft touch, a piece of showboating and a couple of theatrical slips on the greasy surface”.

Like his older brother, Enoch was born in Ghana but raised in Italy. He has reportedly caught the interest of high-flying Napoli, the team which ultimately knocked Man City out of the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
