Mario Balotelli could be one of the most infuriating soccer players who has ever existed. He has so much talent but can go months or even years without showing his full potential. It is infuriating as a fan because he is leagues behind where he should be as a player if he was only able to keep his head on straight. The above incident is a perfect example of why he cost so much less than he should have this past transfer window and why Liverpool were criticized for signing him. Who exchanges their jersey with a member from the opposing team at halftime? Liverpool were getting embarrassed 3-0 at the time and this basically says “This game is over.” Granted he was was substituted at halftime but did he know that before he exchanged the jersey? Even if he did know it would still be bad but if he didn’t it would be even worse. For a player under as much scrutiny as he is because of the way he has played since his arrival at Liverpool it was stupid to do this. The media was already eating him alive so he must have known doing something like this would only make it worse. Mario Balotelli had a chance to reinvent himself at Liverpool and he is failing to break out of his old habits. Luis Suarez had bad habits too but at least he scored goals and played his heart out.
