Mario Balotelli appears to be embracing Liverpool’s philosophy after the Italian posted a quote from Reds legend Bill Shankly on Instagram.

The 24-year-old forward signed a long-term deal with the Reds last month after the 18-time English champions agreed a £16m deal with AC Milan.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has stressed that Balotelli will have to adopt the team’s hard-working ethic if he wants to be a success at Anfield.

And Rodgers’s words appear to have resonated with the former Manchester City forward after Balotelli posted an iconic quote from Liverpool legend Shankly.

It read: “This is a team of skill and character, with men eager and ready to do any job if it’s for the benefit of the club.

“No one is asked to do more than anyone else. We are a team. We share the ball, we share the game, we share the worries.”

Balotelli was part of City’s side that won the Premier League title in 2012.
