Balotelli was tipped to become to become one of the world's best strikers earlier in his career.

However, the 25-year-old has struggled since joining Liverpool and failed to make an serious impact during his loan stint with AC Milan last season.

Legendary Reds defender, Jamie Carragher admits he was shocked when the Merseyside outfit bought the Italian forward.

“I couldn’t believe Liverpool signed him, to be honest,” Carragher was quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo. 

“With every signing, you’re never quite sure. You hope it goes well, you hope it goes wrong for certain other clubs when they sign someone.

“But Mario Balotelli, I couldn’t believe we signed him. He’s one of the most overrated players I’ve seen in my life.”
