PHOTOS: Balotelli in Liverpool training - Struggles with bib and laughs with teammates

Liverpool's newest recruit appeared to be having a struggle with his bib once again in training for the Reds today.

Mario Balotelli has been captured struggling to put on a bib again in Liverpool training.

The Italian striker famously couldn’t manage the seemingly basic dressing procedure last time he was in England – with Manchester City – and it appears that he still hasn’t quite mastered the skill.

After he did struggle through the task of putting the bib on, he did have a better time during Liverpool’s training and he can be seen laughing with Kolo Toure and Emre Can during the session (as shown below).

Balotelli’s arrival at Liverpool has encouraged supporters of the club that they can recover their goalscoring threat which departed somewhat, after Luis Suarez left for Barcelona.

The £16 million addition brings undoubted quality to their squad and should take to the field against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday to make his debut.

When he does, Liverpool supporters will be hoping he finds it easier task than putting his bib on today as they will be reliant on him to bring some momentum back to the club after a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Monday night.
