There are a big couple of weeks ahead for Liverpool in the Premier League, who have the chance to put some distance between them and their rivals in the race for the top-four this evening as they take on Watford.
The Reds fans lining the bar here in the Tavern are confident they can come away from Vicarage Road with a victory that helps them really get ahead of United, City and Arsenal in the race for fourth but they’ve still got plenty of work to do.
And one man that won’t be sharing any of Liverpool’s aspirations for the top-four this campaign is former striker Mario Balotelli, who endured a tough spell at Anfield during his time at the club.
And his former boss Brendan Rodgers, who is now at the helm at Celtic, admitted during the club’s end-of-season awards that Balotelli was “the best player he’d ever managed”.
According to the Sun, there was plenty of laughs in the audience after the response, particularly considering Balotelli’s hapless time with the club.
Of course, there was some humour to the question, put to Rodgers by a Hoops fan but it highlights just how fractured their relationship was at Anfield.
