Balotelli Can Be Better Than Suarez

In a move that has been talked about all summer, Mario Balotelli, appears destined to return to the Premier League. Apparently the Reds are in talks with AC Milan to sign the player, with whether it will be a loan or permanent deal the biggest detail to iron out.

I, for one, would not be opposed to the move. In comparison to his first season, Balotelli didn't do well… But then again, everybody was terrible… 

We saw glimpses of his talent during his time at Manchester City, we’ve seen him utterly dominate Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final and I believe, that if Brendan Rodgers can get through to him, we can see him emerge as a truly unstoppable striker at our club. You want a man to fill the role left behind by Luis Suarez? Super Mario is that guy. He scored 12 goals in 12 appearances for AC Milan from January until May 2013, with 5.9 shots per game, 1.5 key passes and 3 dribbles.

Even last year, which was a monstrously bad one for the whole of Milan, he managed 14 goals for the Italian club and I think he could easily double that with the amount of service he’d be receiving at Liverpool from Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson.

So, if we really want to bring in a player that can match Luis Suarez’s quality this season, now is the time and Mario is the man.
