Mario Balotelli angers his teammates both on and off the pitch, according to former AC Milan colleague Marco Amelia, reports the Express.
Balotelli has divided opinion since his £16million transfer to Liverpool in the summer, with the forward firing just one goal in his first seven matches.
The 24-year-old has a reputation for being something of a controversial character in England, and goalkeeper Amelia has added to that with his claim that the forward angers his teammates with his attitude.
“In the locker room it’s almost as if he weren’t there at all. You have to drag words out of him,” the goalkeeper said.
“During a game he has this almost mocking attitude that makes his team-mates angry, but deep down he’s a good lad.
