Adana Demirspor’s Akintola relishing Balotelli link-up vs Fenerbahce


The Super Eagles prospect says he is looking forward to partnering the Italian when the Blue Lightnings take on the Yellow Canaries

Adana Demirspor forward Babajide Akintola is relishing the chance to link up with Mario Balotelli ahead of his debut against Fenerbahce on Sunday.

After completing his loan move to Hatayspor – where he scored six times in 35 Super Lig outings – the 25-year-old was transferred to the Blue Lightnings from Midtjylland for an undisclosed fee.

He will make his Adana bow when they take on Fenerbahce at the New Adana Stadium as the Turkish elite division gets underway.

While hoping for a positive outing against a "powerful" Yellow Canaries side that boasts Bright Osayi-Samuel, Mbwana Samatta, Marcel Tisserand and Nabil Dirarin in their ranks, the Nigerian is hoping to partner the former Manchester City and Inter Milan star in the attack.
