Now that Mario Balotelli has officially become a Liverpool player, he can resume his status as the British media's primary source for zany antics.

The Italian striker has given his first interview as a Reds player to the club's in-house TV channel, who have leaked out a small snippet on YouTube.  

Sadly, Super Mario isn't in a particularly boisterous mood in what amounts to a relatively insipid clip.

However, the 24-year-old admits he was surprised to receive such a good reception from the Anfield faithful, considering the fact that they were never too complimentary about him when he played in sky blue.

Oh, the fickle nature of football fans...
