Mario Balotelli is hoping that he can repay Liverpool supporters for their unwavering faith.

The Reds striker missed the 3-1 defeat by Crystal Palace due to an injury problem which he suffered during training with the Italy national team.

Balotelli has failed to score in nine Premier League games, although the Italian has netted in the Champions League and Capital One Cup.

And the controversial 24-year-old thanked Reds fans for backing him during a difficult start to his Liverpool career.

“I’m glad to be here [at Liverpool],” Balotelli told BeIn Sports.

“I know that it’s crucial for a striker to score goals but fortunately the fans continue to love me: the Liverpool supporters are fantastic.

“I’m very grateful to them for their support in what has been a difficult period for me.

“When I return to scoring it will be mainly thanks to them for continuing to believe in me.”

Balotelli joined Liverpool in a £16m deal from AC Milan in the summer transfer window.
