Balotelli addresses Liverpool comeback via Twitter

Liverpool loanee Mario Balotelli had to correct himself after tweeting about a 'comeback' earlier.

Liverpool loanee Mario Balotelli caused a stir earlier when he posted a seemingly innocuous tweet referring to a comeback.

The striker is currently with AC Milan, where he has scored once in four appearances, the same tally as he managed in 16 league games for Liverpool last season.

He struggled to make an impact or win the faith of manager Brendan Rodgers, but with the manager sacked at the weekend, Balotelli may yet get a fresh start at Liverpool at the end of the current campaign.

Balotelli sent a message stating he was planning a comeback, which he later clarified was to do with the Italy national team, before deleting both messages.

After confusing supporters, he sent a message to Liverpool fans telling them they do not need to pine for his return.

Any future for Balotelli at Liverpool will be dependent on the club's new manager, which The BBC report is set to be Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp is a manager Balotelli admires, tweeting a positive remark about the Borussia Dortmund boss back in 2013, but it remains to be seen if the feeling is mutual.

Supporters made their feelings clear to the Italian international, stating their belief he can still play a part at Anfield.
