Avail yourselves of the best Mario Balotelli jokes that Twitter had to offer as the maverick Italian returns to AC Milan on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
It just didn’t work out for the former Manchester City striker at Anfield, where he was so often spotted sulking on a bench that he practically demanded a can of Special Brew in his hand.
He will now go back to the Serie A, where he scored enough goals in his previous spell to convince Jamie Carragher that Brendan Rodgers had had himself a bargain at £16m.
As it turns out, Rodgers was just plain ol’ had.
Now set some fireworks off in the kitchen in celebration of these Mario Balotelli jokes…

Balotelli: – Rodgers tactic didn't suit me. I agree. Rodgers wanted the strikers to score goals.

Balotelli; 16 games – 1 goal Rooney; last 16 games – 1 goal The difference between the two is that Balotelli speaks better English
