Enoch Barwuah, the younger brother of Milan and Azzurri striker Mario Balotelli, has stated that being related to the Italy international comes with a lot of advantages and a great deal of snags.
The 20-year-old is struggling to settle down in his football career, hopping from club to club which has seen him play in England, Malta and now in Italy’s Serie C.
“I am one of missed opportunities, being a brother of Mario is an advantage in life every day , but it is a disadvantage in the world of football. In football, I am and will always remain in the second row,” Enoch told Chi Magazine.
“I am always in the shadows. I never had the big opportunity, what could change my life will be to accept to play for Padania.”
Enoch added: “Mario makes his way and I make mine. I've never been recommended, sometimes when playing people at the stadium insult, or tell me ‘nigger m...’ or ‘go away’. I am black and I'm proud of it. In any case, I pretend not to hear, I do not react.”
The forward, who was once linked to Napoli, Stoke City and Steua Bucharesti, is yet to be capped by Ghana or Italy at any level.
