THE good natured love-in between ex-Liverpool manager and his former star striker Mario Balotelli has continued today with the Italian striker taking to social media to praise Brendan Rodgers.
On Sunday evening Rodgers was asked at Celtic’s Player of the Year dinner who was the best player that he had coached and had no hesitation in naming the Italian striker who he described as a ‘fantastic player’.
This was received by the audience with howls of laughter as they were well aware of the problems Rodgers experienced trying to get the best out of the striker for Liverpool . The Irishman’s man management skills are widely recognised in the game and are very evident within his current squad at Celtic.
However Balotelli too can see the funny side as he replied today, describing Rodgers as an “amazing” coach.
Brendan Rodgers you are also the best manager I ever had😂😘😘. Amazing.
