Mario Balotelli's Refusal to Talk to The Sun Will Help Him Be a Hit in Liverpool

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterAugust 21, 2014

Mario Balotelli's proposed move to Liverpoolthe latest updates can be found on the site here—has certainly got people talking, and as Bleacher Report Liverpool Correspondent Max Munton points out, the Italian's arrival could be divisive.

However, this clip should be sure to get him off on a good footing with Reds fans.

When he moved to AC Milan at the start of 2013, one reporter from The Sun came to ask him about the move. 

However, Balotelli refused to answer because of the way he had been covered by them during his first stint in England.

Of course, Liverpool fans have famously not forgiven the paper for the way it covered the Hillsborough tragedy of 1989.
