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.
Balotelli on a free is still paying over the odds by Nice.

Balotelli. That worked out well for pretty much everybody.

Aaaaand there we go. Mario Balotelli’s Liverpool career is over after he joined Nice on a free transfer.

Balotelli joining Nice on a free is basically Nice giving us £5m because that’s what his wages save us!
That’s nice #LFC
