Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has failed to nail down a starting place in Brendan Rodgers team since moving from AC Milan for £16 million during the summer, and has once again turned to Social Media in order to release his frustration.

The 24-year-old Italian international was missing for Liverpool’s 0-1 win over Swansea Monday night due to illness, but it did not stop him posting a video on Instagram having a go at his critics.

“Do you know me?” he said on the brief video. “Did you ever talk to me, personally?

“Do you know what I’ve been through in my life?

“You just saw me play football on the pitch, sure. Man, shut up.”

This is just the latest episode in a long line of events and might just add to the reasons as to why Liverpool will cut him loose during the summer.
