The Daily Mail have claimed that Liverpool are about to give Mario Balotelli one final chance to prove himself at Anfield and our regulars here in the Football Transfer Tavern are not impressed.
The Reds have seen the maverick forward struggle to impress this season with Balotelli yet to register in the Premier League, not to mention the fact that he has recently been in trouble with the FA following an ill-advised upload on Instagram.
As one of our punters notes, not only has Balotelli been fairly unimpressive on the field but he has also reportedly been causing problems with his team-mates who have been unimpressed with the leeway Brendan Rodgers has been handing to him.
This is of course a problem that has followed Balotelli throughout the course of his professional career, especially whilst at Manchester City.
Now there is very little choice for Rodgers bar to hand Balotelli at least one more chance to impress with Daniel Sturridge out injured and Rickie Lambert considered a veteran short-term option.
Liverpool fans. Where do you stand on the whole Mario Balotelli saga? Is the best yet to come or was this transfer doomed from the beginning? Let us know your thoughts below.
