VIDEO: Balotelli sings hilarious rendition of Liverpool chant

Mario Balotelli gears up for the Merseyside derby in typical relaxed fashion.

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has decided to try his hand at helium-influenced singing on the eve of the Reds’ Merseyside clash against Everton.

The 24-year-old striker has struggled somewhat since joining the club from AC Milan for a reported £16 million transfer fee.

Balotelli arrived with a heavy reputation and has found himself under enormous pressure to replace former Kop hero Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan international netted an astounding 31 Premier League goals last season, a mark Balotelli failed to hit during a previous two-and-a-half year stint at rivals Manchester City.

Despite having not found the net in the Premier League as of yet, Saturday’s clash against Everton offers the Italian international the perfect opportunity to kick-start his Liverpool career.

With such a momentous proposition ahead, the controversial striker decided to reach out to supporters by singing a rendition of a Liverpool chant after inhaling helium from a balloon before uploading it to Instagram.

Whilst this latest incident may leave some scratching their heads, such an act can only highlight Balotelli’s relaxed and calm attitude on the eve of undoubtedly his biggest game in a Reds shirt to date.
