Mario Balotelli Enrages Liverpool Fans With Raheem Sterling Tweet
Mario Balotelli has enraged Liverpool fans after he congratulated former team-mate Raheem Sterling for scoring on his Manchester City debut.
Sterling finally completed an acrimonious £49m move to City last week but took less than three minutes to find the target for his new club in their 5-4 penalty shoot-out win over Roma in the International Champions Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Balotelli took to social media and tweeted: “Well done @sterling 31 ! Best Answer, keep it up.”
However, the former City striker soon regretted his post as a Twitter mob was soon urging the Italy international to follow Sterling's lead by leaving Anfield.
Balotelli responded with two further Tweets: “Liverpool fans are amazing but i [email protected] will play at his best because he deserve it. He's a good guy young and talented…..
“Support him Like you always did .He gave everything to this club and respect it so im sad to see this.YNWA ,Liverpool is a family ALWAYS.”
Balotelli's best efforts, however, failed to calm down some Liverpool fans still angry over the manner of the 20-year-old's departure.
“Back doing what I love doing,” Sterling later tweeted with a picture of himself which was also met by a torrent of abuse.
