Balotelli to stay at Liverpool

MAY 28, 2015

Liverpool striker, Mario Balotelli, will be staying at the club next season, his agent Mino Raiola claimed yesterday.

Since Balotelli’s £16 million move from AC Milan in August 2014, the striker has been struggling to score goals for the club, after only scoring one league goal and the four goals in all competition matches.

This has brought up speculation that Liverpool will want to move the 24-year-old on within the close-season transfer window.

"We have talks with Liverpool and he will stay,” Raiola told Sky Sports.

In January this year, Liverpool Manager, Brendan Rodgers told Balotelli that he must work harder in training in order to adapt to the team.

"I think Mario did adapt," Raiola added.

"I can't talk about Brendan Rodgers, obviously that is something for Brendan, but I think Mario did. I have spoken at various times to the club and they were happy with his input and professionalism.”

"Obviously we have to improve the performance but I am really confident that will happen this year,” he added.
