Liverpool supporters have spoken - they want Mario Balotelli gone by the start of next season.

The Italian striker was bought for £16million from AC Milan last summer but struggled to fit into Brendan Rodgers' system, scoring one Premier League goal and four in total all season.

Fans website 90min polled Liverpool fans on which player they would like to see sold this summer out of four players - and the response was emphatic.


45,788 supporters - enough to fill their famous Anfield home - responded, with a whopping 48 per cent wanting to see Balotelli leave.

Fabio Borini, another expensive striking flop, was also a popular choice and gathered 31 per cent of the votes.

Dejan Lovren was third with 12 per cent and Jose Enrique gathered just nine per cent of votes.
