Mario Balotelli’s Liverpool career has been full of disappointment so far. Much was expected when the controversial Italian signed for the Reds in a £16m deal over the summer, but almost six months on he’s failed to score a single Premier League goal and has been criticised for a lack of effort, lack of desire and a general lack of ability.
Brendan Rodgers is rumoured to be growing frustrated with him, and with ‘Super Mario’ not in the Liverpool squad for the first game of the January transfer window, there are suggestions that he may be off…

Balotelli doesn’t even make the bench. Must be off in January. #LFC

No place for Balotelli in the squad to play Leicester. Good the lads finished at Anfield and should never have been bought. Hate him!!!
