Liverpool news and rumour round-up: Sunday’s biggest stories for the Reds…
Balotelli edging closer to Liverpool exit
Reports have emerged of a clash between Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and striker Mario Balotelli. The Reds boss was forced to tell the Italian forward to get himself to bed just hours before a Champions League game in Switzerland.
The Daily Mirror claim that the hotel incident is just one of a string of episodes that have left Balotelli’s days at Liverpool numbered – with the star finally driving Kop boss Rodgers close to complete distraction.
Behind-the-scenes events that have left Rodgers realising the signing of £16m Balotelli from AC Milan was a major mistake, and is undermining his own position. Balotelli has scored just two goals so far this season.
