Brendan Rodgers believes Mario Balotelli's loan deal to AC Milan is good for all parties involved.

The Italian rejoined his former club on a season long loan deal, putting an end to his disastrous spell at Anfield and Rodgers refused to be dragged into a war of words after Balotelli criticised his tactics.

The 25-year-old's spell on Merseyside, following his £16 million move, was extremely disappointing and the Liverpool boss believes it is good that he will get to play regular football in his home nation.

As relayed by the Mirror, Rodgers was speaking to the press ahead of Liverpool's game with West Ham tomorrow, and said: "It’s a good move for Mario. It suits both parties. He goes to play and gets a season of playing football in his homeland."

The comments by the former Swansea City manager suggest he is happy to see the back of Balotelli, who antics during his time at the Reds were pretty shocking.

The former Manchester City forward claimed Rodgers' tactics were not suitable for his style of play, however the Italian did not do much to endear himself to the Anfield faithful.

Christian Benteke, Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino have been drafted in over the summer to compensate for the club's lack of goal last season and Benteke has already impressed.

The Belgian's hunger and desire to help his team-mates, along with his eye for goal have been evident in the early stages of the season and he is on target to become a firm favourite at Liverpool.

Had Balotelli possessed the attitude of the former Aston Villa man, he may have been a success of Merseyside.

Liverpool fans, can Christian Benteke become a star at Anfield? Are you glad to see the back of Mario Balotelli? Have your say below!
