Brendan Rodgers confirms that Liverpool’s transfer committee signed Mario Balotelli (Video)

Brendan is back!

For the first time since his sacking from Liverpool earlier in the season, the Northern Irish manager appeared on Goals on Sunday and he revealed plenty of interesting stories.

One subject touched upon was how it came to pass that Mario Balotelli was signed.

Rodgers candidly confessed that he wasn’t a fan of Super Mario, however as Liverpool struggled to sign a striker it was decided by the club’s transfer committee that they’d make the signing happen.

Rodgers was then told to work with the player.

Balotelli is currently on loan at AC Milan.
