There is no doubt that one of the best strikers Liverpool has had in its history is Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, who surprised the world with his great goals at Anfield and won the hearts of the fans with his great performances.

 

Suarez quickly became one of the favorite players of Liverpool fans, because during his time at Anfield he showed that he had the potential to be one of the best or even the best striker in the world, and so it was because when he was signed by Barcelona, Luis Suarez won everything and was consecrated as one of the best players in the world.

However, his departure left a difficult gap to fill for the Reds, who searched tirelessly for his replacement, until they found a striker who promised not only to fill the gap left by the Uruguayan, but even to be better than him.

We are talking about Mario Balotelli, Italian striker who in 2014 joined Liverpool and who by that time had already given some glimpses of his quality, as he had been one of the great figures of Euro 2012 with Italy, however his actions off the field did not allow him to become the striker everyone expected and finally left Liverpool with only four goals.

 

Where does Mario Balotelli play today?

Currently Mario Balotelli, 32 years old, has a contract with FC Sion of the Swiss league, a team that in the 2022-2023 season was relegated to the second division.
