'We don't need Balotelli!' – Irish side mock Liverpool striker

The Irish First Division side have compared the Italian’s scoring exploits at Anfield to four of their own players, as the striker’s future in England continues to be questioned

Don’t expect to see Mario Balotelli playing in the Irish First Division any time soon.

Cabinteely FC have publicly ruled out a move for the striker after being less than impressed with his form for Liverpool after joining for €20 million last summer, scoring just once in 16 Premier League games.

Comparing Balotelli to the likes of Conor Foley, John McKeown, Ger Pender and Shane O’Neill, the Italian’s scoring stats do not rank well in a tongue-in-cheek post on Twitter.

Balotelli’s future at Anfield is under question despite signing a three-year deal less than 12 months ago, with Liverpool strengthening their forward line with the announcement of Danny Ings’ imminent arrival from Burnley on Monday.
