Twitter reacts to Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli’s move to AC Milan

Balotelli Milan back

The Italian will rejoin his former club on loan after a difficult spell on Merseyside.

Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli today completed his medical ahead of a switch to former club AC Milan on a season-long loan, as confirmed on the club’s official website.

The Italian endured a torrid time at Anfield, appearing just 28 times and scoring four goals following his £16 million move (according to BBC Sport) last summer.

He returns to a struggling Rossoneri side, far removed from the heights of a few years ago, who could only manage a 10th place finish in Serie A last season.

Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team have gone about strengthening this summer, however, and new recruits Carlos Bacca and Luis Adriano will make Balotelli’s task of securing a first team berth a very tricky one.

The 25-year old’s career has stagnated after showing early promise and this latest move has more than a hint of the ‘last-chance-saloon’ about it.

Twitter reaction proved fairly unanimous, with the Liverpool faithful delighted to see the back of one of the club’s biggest disappointments in recent memory.
