Few people seemed more delighted to see the back of Mario Balotelli at Liverpool than club legend Jamie Carragher.
The former defender-turned-pundit has, on more than one occasion, mocked the Italian striker's move to Nice on social media in recent days. So much so that Balotelli himself responded directly to Carragher on Twitter yesterday to call him a "bad player" but a "wonderful hater."
As you might expect given Carragher's outspoken nature, the former Liverpool player wasn't about to let Balotelli have the last word. And, this evening, he has continued the feud with a tweet drenched in sarcasm.

Responding to a fan's question on Twitter asking what he thought about Balotelli, Carragher couldn't help taking a not so subtle dig at the now ex-Liverpool striker...
The chances of Balotelli ever getting hold of the coveted Ballon D'Or trophy whilst at Nice are about as good as the 26-year-old inviting Carragher round for Christmas dinner.
It will be interesting to see if the Italian lets this latest dig slide, or if he comes back with a put down of his own.
It isn't immediately obvious just why Carragher has been so public in ridiculing Balotelli, but it has only increased his status as a club hero amongst Liverpool fans.
With Balotelli having only managed two Premier League goals in two years at Anfield, there is only ever going to be one winner when it comes to fans picking their side as the feud continues.
Really, the only way the former Manchester City and AC Milan striker can come out on top here is to get his head down and start hitting the back of the net at his new club.
Even a huge turnaround in form and a 30-odd goal season wouldn't bring him the Ballon D'Or. However, it would at least improve his reputation from its current standing which, in Carragher's eyes at least, couldn't get much lower.
Considering the two characters involved, one thing is pretty certain - this isn't the last we have heard from these two.
