Liverpool news and rumour round-up: Saturday’s biggest stories for the Reds…
Decision on Balotelli future to be made at the end of the season
Liverpool are prepared to keep faith with controversial Italian striker Mario Balotelli until the end of the season – according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The struggling forward, who is yet to score in the Premier League this season and is currently sidelined through injury, was hit with an FA charge yesterday, after a post on social media website Instagram.
The prospect of a ban by the FA has already led to speculation that Balotelli could be dismissed as a gamble gone wrong and allowed to leave in the new year – but it appears as if that won’t be the case.
