Balotelli called Liverpool players his “ex” team-mates on Twitter

Posted by

Mario Balotelli’s time at Anfield was not a resounding success. In fact, it was arguably a total failure.

The Italian tearaway managed just one league goal all season – the winner in our 3-2 win against Spurs in mid-February.

That said, he is still our player. He is only on loan at AC Milan, and given our terrible goal-scoring record this season, he might have been pretty useful to have around.

There are no guarantees that Milan will pick him up on a permanent deal in the summer, and it’s more than possible that he’ll find himself back at Melwood for pre-season training.

It might not have been the smartest idea, therefore, to call our players his “ex” team mates in a pre-game tweet today.

To be fair to Mario, his intentions were clearly good – at least he made the effort to say something.

Was it a deliberate use of the word “ex” though? Perhaps it was just lost in translation? Or maybe a mere slip of the tongue?

You decide!
