Enock Barwuah saddened by Balotelli’s failure to unleash his potential

Younger brother of Mario Balotelli Barwuah, Enock Barwuah has expressed disappointment in his brother for playing at only 30 per cent of his potential.

The maverick poacher joined Brescia to much fanfare at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, returning to the town where he spent his childhood.

It was hoped the return to his hometown would help Balotelli rediscover his confidence, but that hasn’t been the case.

However, he has found the net just five times from 20 matches in Serie A this campaign.

Barwuah is frustrated to see his brother who he thinks has so much talent continue to let himself down.

“The one thing I would like to tell Mario is that if he played at 100 per cent, he’d be unstoppable. Instead, he only plays at 30 per cent. He’s very sensitive, so if the slightest thing goes wrong, he lets his head drop and doesn’t perform. It’s not easy to play with that much pressure on your shoulders,” Enock told

“We were both so happy when he signed for Brescia. Mario didn’t think twice, he accepted immediately and dropped all the other proposals. Unfortunately, everything he says or does gets painted in a negative light. That’s why he wrote ‘Why always me?’ on his shirt.

“I get so angry when I see Mario being the victim of racist abuse, I’d like to be by his side on the pitch to support him. I think harsher penalties are needed against these fans, but you can’t force someone to change their minds.”
