Mario Balotelli Italy

Would any Liverpool fans really want to wear a Mario Balotelli mask, or even one of Brendan Rodgers?

Forget the half-and-half scarves, stadium sellers have a new piece of merchandise to shift.

The problem is, will anybody want one?

Outside Anfield on Wednesday night were masks for sale, with fans able to pay homage to manager Brendan Rodgers, Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling or yes, Mario Balotelli.

After last night's underwhelming display, we doubt they were doing a roaring trade as fans left the ground.

Of course the Sterling one could act up as a sleep-mask for the sleep-deprived, while Brendan Rodgers' glistening white teeth will help wearers be identified in the dark easily.

Mario Balotelli may even want to don a mask of one of his teammates, if he wishes to escape the criticism coming his way for his half-time shirt swap.

We can only assume that with Halloween coming up, there may be a market for them.
