Despite his recent resurgence at Liverpool, Mario Balotelli did not play at all during the 2-0 Premier League win over Burnley on Wednesday evening.
Balotelli spent the whole evening on the bench and was not called upon by Brendan Rodgers with Liverpool securing a comfortable victory.
Goals from Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge mean Liverpool remain well in the race for the top four having put together an excellent run of form since the turn of the calendar year.
After the game, Mario Balotelli took to Instagram and wrote a bizarre message, whilst praising the Liverpool win.
Specifically, Super Mario wrote: “Someone doesn’t Like me”.
The message continued: “But differently of what they say about me im a team player and im so proud of my team,of this win and of these fans! let’s keep going bravi ragazzi!!! YNWA !!!”
There have already, somewhat predictably, been suggestions that the “someone” is Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
According to some Liverpool fans, the Burnley supporters jeered and booed Balotelli as he warmed up on the sidelines and this seems the most likely reason for the message.
Balotelli will be hoping to be involved when Liverpool play Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Sunday.
