Brescia and Italy striker Mario Balotelli while having a conversation with France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry discussed his favourite meals which included Ghanaian delicacy Jollof.
The Covid – 19 pandemic has robbed football fans across the world of the thrill of watching their favourite stars perform but it has also revealed what these athletes get up to in their off time.
Among the footballers who have taken to Instagram live during this period of social distancing and staying indoors is Italian born Ghanaian Mario Balotelli.
He admitted to Henry that Jollof is by far his favourite when it comes to African cuisine but also added that there was a place in his heart for fufu.
“I can cook basic stuff but not even good,to be honest cooking is not my stuff, I don’t like it to be honest,”
“I like to eat Pasta, a lot of meat, then I have some African dishes I like, like jollof rice, of course that’s the best,” he said while grinning.
“I can eat vegetables, not a lot, some fish but for me African jollof rice is the best and Pasta.”
“I like fufu but fufu you can eat once every three weeks it’s a bit heavier.” he revealed
However, despite his much anticipated move to hometown club Brescia where he was born to Ghanaian parents ,the 29 year old has only managed 5 goals in 19 appearances.
