Brendan Rodgers is adamant Liverpool will avoid becoming “the Mario Balotelli Show.”
He seemed less than impressed when told about the number of young fans who stood on bins to peer over the walls at Melwood to watch the new £16million signing from AC Milan train.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, he said: “I don’t just think they were trying to see just him,” said the Irishman.
“He’s a good player, a talented player, but he’s got a lot of work to do here.
“We have got a number of top-class players here and the star of this team will always be the team, so I don’t think they were climbing on the bins just to see him.”
