Mario Balotelli managed just two goals in two years with Liverpool in what was a tumultuous period for the 26-year-old.
Now, the Italian striker has taken just eight minutes to reach half that total as he begins the latest chapter of his career with Nice.
Making his debut for the Ligue 1 side on Sunday night against Marseille, Balotelli stepped up and took the responsibility as his new side were awarded a penalty. Cue a confident finish and an equally confident celebration. Scroll down this article to see the goal.
Having been given the nod to start for the first time since joining from Liverpool in the later stages of the summer transfer window, Balotelli hasn't taken long to make his mark.
And he clearly hasn't lost any of his trademark cool after a difficult few years at Anfield. It wasn't quite the 'Why always me' celebration seen during his Manchester City days, but the 26-year-old striker's arms-wide celebration shows he isn't lacking any self-confidence.
It is the perfect start for Balotelli at Nice and he will be hoping it is a sign of things to come.
Many people - including Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher - had mocked Balotelli for his failure to succeed on Merseyside, and had questioned whether a move to France was the beginning of the end for the talented but controversial striker.
However, as Hatem Ben Arfa proved recently, Nice can be the perfect environment to resurrect a career.
With a composed debut goal to his name already, Balotelli will be hoping that he can follow in Ben Arfa's footsteps.
