Balotelli, a mercurial and enigmatic Italian striker formerly of Manchester City and recently of Serie A side, A.C. Milan, will get another chance to cement his status as an all-world footballer for perhaps the most storied and decorated side in English soccer in Liverpool.
While not as prolific as Suarez, Balotelli tallied 14 goals for the Rossaneri in 30 apps, six assists on 105 shots and created 32 chances while at San Siro in 2013-14.
Despite selling Suarez, acquiring Balotelli enables Liverpool to absorb some of the sting of selling the Uruguayan ace as they have acquired quality pieces to compensate for the loss of Suarez’s production in the form of Lille striker Divorck Origi and Benfica striker/forward Lazar Markovic.
Adding Balotelli to a quality Reds side that still has Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge and Kolo Toure will enable Liverpool to keep pace in what will be a tight and very competitive EPL in 2014-15. If the Merseyside side is able to properly use Balotelli up front, don’t be too surprised to see the Reds as one of the teams qualifying for Champions League.
