Martin Keown & Lawro back Rodgers’ decision to sign Mario Balotelli [Video]

Mari0 Balotelli’s imminent signature for Liverpool was a topic for discussion on Football Focus this morning.

Studio guests Martin Keown and Mark ‘Lawro’ Lawrenson both vouched for Rodgers’ decision to bring Mad Mario back to the Premier League, despite agreeing that he’s a ‘problem player’.

Keown and Lawro cited Rodgers’ ability to sedate Luis Suarez as proof that the Northern Irishma is adept at getting the best out of difficult players.

Having seen the excitement his arrival at Melwood generated yesterday, Lawro feels that it’s a ‘no-brainer’.
