Crotone keen to sign Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli - club president Vrenna

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says Mario Balotelli's behaviour has improved significantly despite a poor season at AC Milan.

Serie A club Crotone's president Raffaele Vrenna says he has made an approach for Mario Balotelli to the Liverpool forward's agent.

Crotone are preparing for their first ever season in Italy's top flight following promotion last season and Vrenna wants Balotelli, 25, to spearhead their attack, saying the move would be mutually beneficial.

"I've got to admit that I have called his agent Mino Raiola to talk about Balotelli," Vrenna told "Crotone has the ideal surroundings for a young...

Serie A club Crotone name Davide Nicola as new head coach

Former Bari boss Davide Nicola has taken charge at Crotone.

Davide Nicola will lead Crotone into the first Serie A campaign in their history after being named head coach of the promoted club.

The Calabrians finished second behind Cagliari in Serie B, with their Croatian boss Ivan Juric attracting attention from the likes of Leeds by upsetting the odds in the second tier.

Juric is now free to join Genoa, who have been linked with his services since Gian Piero Gasperini moved to Atalanta earlier this month, while former Bari coach Nicola takes over at the...

Mario Balotelli offered way out of Liverpool by newly promoted Crotone

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Shaka Hislop react to Italy's 30-man Euro roster, which has some notable omissions.
Former Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld says Mario Gotze would suit Liverpool well after limited chances with the Bavarian club.

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has been urged to join Serie A new boys Crotone next season by the club's president to get his career back on track.

Crotone were promoted to Serie A this season and Raffaele Vrenna believes his club, from Italy's Calabria region, would be just the right place for Balotelli to rediscover his best form.

"I was asked recently about a player who needs to get back to his best and I believe that we could get Balotelli back to his best," Vrenna said in Gazzetta dello...

Crotone promoted to Serie A for first time in their history

Crotone fans will be able to watch their team in the top flight for the first time next season.

Crotone were promoted to Serie A for the first time in their history following a 1-1 draw at Modena on Friday night.

The visitors picked up the point they needed to guarantee a maiden season in the top flight of Italian football thanks to Raffaele Palladino's 44th-minute penalty, which cancelled out Davide Luppi's opener after 17 minutes.

The draw left the Calabrians 13 points clear of third-placed Trapani, who have four games left to play.

Around 1,200 fans had travelled to Modena, while thousands...

Crotone's magical rise should see them take Serie A by storm

Crotone FC players celebrating
Crotone are set to gain promotion to the Serie A for the first time in the club's history.

The hospital is so close to the stadium in Crotone that patients can watch games from their rooms -- the joke goes that fans should just pretend they are sick if there are no tickets left on sale.

It feels right somehow, because the city is ill and football is its only cure. Located in Calabria, on the sole of the Italian boot, Crotone is the poorest town even by southern Italy standards. It has been mismanaged for decades, and the unemployment rate is the highest in the country, incredibly estimated...
