1) He likes to shoot
“If you don’t buy a ticket, then you won’t win the lottery.”
Well Balotelli needs no invitation to purchase tickets, as ever since the striker moved to Milan in January 2013, no other player managed more shots in the Italian Serie A than Mario, with 229 (Squawka).
He may have missed most of those, but when he does hit them sweetly there’s not much a goalkeeper can do about it.
Balotelli is the type of player that can produce a goal out of nothing, which was what AC Milan relied on much of last season. However with Liverpool much more composed in possession when compared to the Serie A outfit, Balotelli may not need to conjure something out of nothing week-in-week-out and focus on finishing off his chances.
