Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli revels at his place alongside superheroes Spider-man and Super Man
Mario Balotelli took to Instagram to marvel at his new-found superhero status on Monday afternoon.
The Liverpool striker is facing an uncertain future at Anfield after a disappointing debut campaign at the Merseyside outfit.
The Reds forward slipped further down the pecking order at the five-time European champions following the £29m capture of Roberto Firmino last week.
However, Balotelli’s ego doesn’t appear to have taken too much of a hit after he posted a photo of a ‘Super Mario’ figurine which featured alongside Superman, Spider-man and Captain America.
Balotelli posted the above snap and wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Lol I want them!!!”
Balotelli, who is being linked with a potential return to Serie A in the summer, scored his only Premier League goal in a 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in March.
The Liverpool striker, who was recently linked with a move to Sampdoria managed to net four times in 26 appearances in all competitions over the course of the 2014/15 campaign.
