Mario Balotelli's brother is ecstatic after receiving Didier Drogba's shirt

Mario Balotelli was left out of Liverpool's squad as they drew Chelsea 1-1 at Stamford Bridge last Sunday, but he still managed to get hold of Didier Drogba's shirt.

The Italian striker seemed desperate to get the Chelsea legend's jersey so he could give it to his little brother, Enoch, as a present. 

Balotelli then posted a video on his Instagram of Enoch showing off the shirt and then sliding on his knees and pumping his arms; reminiscent of The Ivorian's goal celebrations.

Enoch then posted his appreciation for the gesture on his Instagram: "😍Another Legend thanks @didierdrogba 🙌🏾 and thanks to Big bro @mb459 ❤️❤️"

It's refreshing to see that Mario does indeed have a nice side to him. However, such goodwill is unlikely to prevent him from leaving Anfield this summer.

Balotelli was a £16 million acquisition from AC Milan in last year's transfer window but has, without question, been an enormous flop.

Signed to replace Luis Suarez - who left Liverpool for Barcelona - Balotelli has scored just once in the Premier League this season. Suarez, meanwhile, scored 31 times in 33 matches during his final campaign as a Liverpool player.
