No Balo for Liverpool this season

Liverpool manager Brandon Rodgers categorically denies that Liverpool are looking to signĀ Balotelli from AC Milan this season. Liverpool has already signed strikers Divock Origi and Rickie Lambart as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez. However, last week Rodgers praise the Milan striker’s talent and that started the speculation that Liverpool are in talks for signing the striker.

In my last press conference I was asked a question about Mario Balotelli and I talked about what a talent he was and what an excellent player he was. And the next day it was wrote as if we were signing him. I just gave my perception of him as a player. It shouldn’t be transmitted in to us signing the player.
