Balotelli was never going to be up to Liverpool’s standard, says David Thomson

David Thompson hints that Mario Balotelli is one of Liverpool’s worst ever signings.  The former Liverpool player says he isn’t surprised Mario Balotelli has failed to impress following his Liverpool move in the summer.

The former AC Milan striker has failed to score in 14 Premier League appearances after he completed a £16m switch to Anfield from AC Milan.

Mario Ballotelli has scored against Middlesbrough and Ludogorets, has been linked with a return to Serie A amid reported interest from Sampdoria.

Thompson, who made 48 appearances for the Reds, hinted that the Italy international is one of Liverpool’s worst signings of the past 15 years.

The 24-year-old striker has scored two goals in 18 appearances in all competitions this season for Liverpool.

The Reds face Chelsea in the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge after a 1-1 draw at Anfield last week.

The Italian star is struggling ever since he left Manchester City after his move to AC Milan in 2012.  His move to back to Premier League is not working for him to gain his form back.
