MARIO BALOTELLI showed up ex-Manchester United star Nani after scoring two goals in his second debut for Adana Demirspor.
Balotelli excelled on his return for the Turkish giants while teammate Nani hid in the Italian’s shadow in their 4-0 victory against Alanyaspor on Sunday.
Ballotelli, 33, has returned to Turkish Super Lig side Adana Demirspor after his season-long spell at the club in 2021-2022.
He scored 19 goals in 33 games for the then-newly promoted side before joining Swiss Super League club Sion.
The former Liverpool and Man City ace made an impressive second debut for the Turkish side scoring two of the team’s four goals on the weekend.
He shared the 4-0 victory with teammate and former major league star Nani.
The 36-year-old joined the Turkish side from Melbourne Victory as he failed to make a breakthrough after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury earlier this year.
The former Man Utd ace signed for Adana Demirspor in July and has only scored one goal in seven appearances for the club.
Balotelli will be hoping for a better spell for the Turkish side this time around, especially after his ugly exit from the Swiss Super League.
He scored just six goals in 19 appearances for FC Sion before being banished from the first team after their 5-0 defeat against Servette in May and fans setting a jersey with Balotelli’s name on fire.

And to top off the disaster the Swiss side were relegated after their 17-year spell in the first division.
Balotelli previously won the Premier League and FA Cup during two drama-packed years with City before leaving for AC Milan.
Liverpool signed him in 2014, but he lasted just one season at Anfield before rejoining Milan on loan.
The talented forward has also played for Nice, Marseille, Brescia and Monza.
