How Much Did Mario Balotelli Really Cost Liverpool?

When Liverpool openly admitted that they were looking at signing Mario Balotelli, people were already very sceptical to what he would contribute to the team.

Almost a year later, myself and many more supporters of the club still cannot tell you what the troubled Italian has brought to the club, but it seems someone has worked out what exactly he has cost us this season.

Mario Balotelli’s Transfer Fee: £16 million

Mario Balotelli’s Weekly wage: £90,000 x 36 weeks at club = £3.24m

Mario Balotelli’s Total Cost So Far:£19.24m

Statistics from Opta has broken down the Italian's expensive year even more and in 16 Premier League appearances he has cost the club as follows...

Goals - 1 or £19.24m per goal

Shots on target - 20 or £962,000 per shot

Shots off target - 16 or £1.2m per shot

Chances created - 10 or £1.924m per chance

Passes - 241 or £79,834 per pass

Liverpool face the prospect of missing out on Champions League football and for the club it seems as if Balotelli is a luxury they can't afford on and off the pitch.

Did you expect Balotelli to be so poor in the Premier League yet again?
