Brendan Rodgers showed his sense of humour recently at a function in which guests asked our former boss questions.
The Northern Irishman has enjoyed a brilliant season with Celtic, who are on track to win the title without losing a single game.
But when asked who was the best player he’s ever worked with, he decided against naming one of his current bunch or Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard or Coutinho…
And instead went with Mario Balotelli! The audience were in hysterics, as Rodgers explained the Italian was a ‘wonderful player’.
Of course, the pair got on infamously badly with Rodgers unable to control the troubled forward, who endured a miserable campaign at Liverpool.
