Photo: More bib trouble for Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli?

The Liverpool striker has a novel way of getting his bib on this time.

Liverpool snapped up Mario Balotelli in the summer from AC Milan. The Italian striker was charged with filling the boots of Luis Suarez, who had upped sticks and decided to join Barcelona after the World Cup.

So far he has struggled to hit the heights expected of him. In recent games he has certainly improved, scoring against Tottenham Hotspur and proving pivotal in the cup win against Crystal Palace. Now he is finally starting to do the things expected of him. One thing he is not expected to be good at, however, is putting on a bib.

Balotelli infamously struggled with a bib before a Europa League tie with Dynamo Kiev when a Manchester City player back in March 2011.

It was, of course, a video that went viral.

Today Liverpool had training ahead of their game with Besiktas in the Europa League tomorrow night and it seems Balotelli has a new approach.

Rather than struggle with arms and aim it looks like he simply tries to allow the bib to fall onto him these days.

Of course, someone could have just been throwing a bib in his direction. But when it comes to Balotelli and bibs, you just never know.
