It has been a “done deal” for over a week now but today it has become official. Mario Balotelli has become a Red. A big part of Liverpool’s summer was centered around fixing the defense. After the departure of Luis Suarez it became clear that another striker would be needed or Liverpool would find it tough to repeat last season’s success. Mario Balotelli is a volatile character but if he plays like he is capable of and keeps his mouth shut then this could be the coup de grace that make Liverpool title contenders this season.
