Mario Balotelli still short of fitness after preseason no-show - Nice's Patrick Vieira

Patrick Vieira has told Mario Balotelli he must lose more weight before he can get back to his best form for Nice and begin to play regularly.

Balotelli arrived two weeks late for the start of preseason training as a result of a failed move to Marseille, and the former Manchester City and Liverpool striker was reportedly overweight when he did turn up.

Mario Balotelli better than before despite weight issues - Nice's Dante

Mario Balotelli has "improved in relation to previous years" despite a difficult start to the season, according to Nice teammate Dante.
