Mario Balotelli has helped Nice retain its position at the top of Ligue 1 over Christmas

Balotelli’s transfer to Nice in France has paid off not only for the reemerging striker but the club itself.

Nice will be crowned ‘champions’ over Christmas, and have Balotelli to thank for their lofty position.

The Italian striker has returned to form, notching 3 goals in the last week alone.

Balotelli has now scored 8 goals for Nice, a brilliant return for a player many thought was a lost cause.

The player also possess a remarkable stat of either scoring, being booked or being sent off in every match he has played.

In charismatic Balotelli style the player celebrated their win by donning a Santa Claus hat with a big grin.

“To play well or to play badly, it’s not important, the important thing is to win.”

Nice will play Bordeaux on Wednesday and a win will see the club clear by seven points at the summit.
