Liverpool morning news: Italy striker aims dig at Balotelli, Scholes on Sterling

Mario Balotelli Italy

A round up of news stories this morning about Liverpool.

Ciro Immobile has implied Mario Baloteli won’t be missed during the current international break.

Liverpool’s £16 million summer arrival from AC Milan has fallen out of favour at international level.

“There are other strikers here who are playing very well. If they’re here, it’s because they deserve to be,” said the Borussia Dortmund forward.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has suggested that Raheem Sterling should be moved down into the England under-21 setup.

Rather than a stab at his old rivals, he’s suggested it’s a move which could help the younger side win some silverware.

“I would advocate taking Raheem Sterling and Jack Wilshere to the tournament next summer, even though they are well established in the senior team,” he wrote in his Standard column.

Suso has called on Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to let him leave if he doesn’t plan to use him.

Suso has been on the fringes of the first team so far this season, rarely stepping into the starting eleven.

“The option is clear; if I don’t renew, let me leave,” he said.
