Mario Balotelli thanks Liverpool on Facebook after AC Milan move

Published 4 Comments

Mario Balotelli has thanked Liverpool and the club’s supporters following his loan move to AC Milan, via a post on his official Facebook account.

The Italian striker has returned to Milan on a season-long loan deal after a dismal first season with Liverpool in which he scored a pitiful four goals in 28 appearances.

Brendan Rodgers made it clear to Balotelli during the summer that his Liverpool career was over, but the former Manchester City star will not hold a grudge against his parent club judging by his latest post on Facebook.

“I’m grateful to Liverpool FC and Liverpool fans for the time and opportunities you gave me,” the 25-year-old wrote. “It’s not a goodbye but rather a farewell.

“I’ll be supporting you guys all the way in every competition… unless you face AC Milan. 🙌🏿🔴👉🏿✊🏿 #‎YNWA #‎SUPERMARIOISBACK #‎IAMTHE45”

Balotelli: All hype and little talent?

Balotelli’s reputation as a footballer has been seriously tarnished over the past 12 months.

Prior to his move to Anfield he was widely regarded as something of a flawed genius; a wayward bad-boy with all the potential in the world but not enough application.

His spell at Liverpool, though, suggests Balotelli is little more than hype. He must now prove otherwise during his loan spell at the San Siro in order to get his career back on track.

Liverpool supporters will not be sad to see Balotelli leave Anfield. Christian Benteke has already scored as many Premier League goals for the Reds - one - as Balotelli managed in a full season with the Merseyside outfit.
