The Daily Mail has some Liverpool fans rolling their eyes and others nodding in agreement here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that Martin Skrtel has offered some support for Mario Balotelli.
The Reds forward drew yet another blank against Hull City this weekend and has now incurred the wrath the majority of our resident Liverpool fans who are desperate to see their £16 million man actually do something positive and bag those regular goals like Luis Suarez did.
The Reds are suffering this season and look a shadow of their former title challenging selves from last season and the loss of Suarez is being hailed as a huge reason for this.
Despite that, at least one of Balotelli’s team-mates has faith in him.
Slovakian international defender Skrtel claimed: “He is working hard and showed some good moments. I feel sorry for him. He is working hard in training, he is working hard in the game. He just hasn’t got the goals.”
Liverpool fans. Do you still believe that Mario Balotelli will come good at Anfield or did this transfer spell ‘disaster’ from the moment the move was completed? Let us know your thoughts below.
