Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says there is no change in Mario Balotelli’s squad status at Anfield.
The Italian has been linked with a summer move away from Anfield as he has made no impression since his signing.
And Rodgers has insisted there’s no point wasting his breath on the Italian any longer.
Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s Monday Night Football clash with Bournemouth, Rodgers said: “My job is to create the best possible environment for the team to succeed.
“That’s what I’ve always done. So I’m not going to speak about Mario when I can speak about another 25 players.”
