IT'S not been the best of seasons for Mario Balotelli.
The controversial striker managed just one Premier League goal after his £16million move from AC Milan to Liverpool last summer.

He’d have a job dislodging the strike partnership of Ger Pender and Shane O’Neill, who between them have three goals this season.
“Stop calling us Mario, we don’t need you,” Cabinteely tweeted ahead of Friday’s clash with Athlone Town.
Why always him indeed.
Here's what Cabinteely FC joked to Mario over Twitter...
