Mario Balotelli has further endeared himself to Liverpool supporters by posting a quote from the great Reds manager Bill Shankly to his followers on his Instagram account.

The controversial Italian striker signed for £16m from AC Milan last week, and made his debut for the club in the 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Only yesterday, the 24-year-old used his social media accounts to say how much he was enjoying being at Liverpool, saying he was looking forward to his Liverpool debut at Anfield in nine days time.

Shankly won three top-flight league titles, two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup during his 15 years in change of Liverpool between 1959 and 1974.

In the past, Balotelli has been accused of not being much of a team player, but this quote he shared today from Shankly states that he is now happy to put the team first.

Balotelli's Shankly quote he posted today:

Balotelli will make his Liverpool debut at Anfield next Saturday against the unbeaten Aston Villa.
