Mario Balotelli was never going to get a good reception when walking in front of thousands of Manchester United fans inside Anfield after they had just won 2-1.
So, it was no surprise to hear United’s travelling fans giving the ex-City and current scouser a right earful, as you’d expect.
Strangely, Balotelli responded to the chants by taking a photo (just to make sure he had that cherished memory in print) and then gave United’s fans the finger before walking off to a chorus of delightful song.
During the game, Balotelli had another stinker. He’s doing terribly at Liverpool. Man United may not have had the best of luck with Radamel Falao this year but at least he was only signed on loan.
If Balotelli wanted to avoid the attention, he could quite easily have given United’s fans a wider berth but he chose not to. ‘Why always me?’ Balotelli once asked, because he enjoys the attention more than a red light district resident, that’s why.
