Mario Balotelli has left Liverpool after a terrible career in which the Italian only scored 4 goals.

There was very little support for a player who showed little to desire to be at the club and it transposed onto the Italian’s performances. Liverpool bought Balotelli for £16 million and essentially paid £4 million per goal that he scored for the club.

Considering very few people expected him to be at the club for the 2016/17, there was a surprising amount of social media response. Some of it fair, some of it unfair, and some of it downright hilarious.

The pundits…

The fans…

When you hear Balotelli has left the club…
