Mario Balotelli takes a shot at Jamie Carragher on Twitter

The Italian striker got a deadline day moved and had this one ready to go

Mario Balotelli has had a go at Jamie Carragher after a parting shot by the Liverpool legend on the day Balotelli moved to Nice.

The 26-year-old's agent organised a free transfer for his client to Nice in France's Ligue 1 but Carragher believes that a free transfer was still too much to spend on the player.

Carragher tweeted on deadline day that, "Balotelli on a free is still paying over the odds by Nice."

Balotelli took three days to become accustomed to his surroundings in France before responding with his own tweet. 

Balotelli's agent, Mina Raiola, has told media outlets that Jurgen Klopp treated his player like s**t by making him train with the reserves.

What appeared to be a mature split between player and club has been turned into quite an acrimious parting by an agent and a former player.
