Photo: Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli says he is missing his pet pig called SUPER

Mario Balotelli has plenty of pounds in his piggy bank, but the Liverpool striker is missing his pet pig, SUPER.

The Italy international has been forced to leave his pet behind following his £16m move to Liverpool from AC Milan this summer.

“Miss my SUPER pig:-(” Balotelli posted on Instagram.

The 24-year-old amused his Twitter followers last August after revealing that he had bought a two-month old pet pig.

The former Manchester City striker, who is affectionately known as Super Mario, named his interesting purchase SUPER.

Balotelli was initially confused whether his new pet pig was male or female before taking to Twitter to clarify the sex of SUPER.

“Actually can t find the willy so i think is a she ahahahaha but maybe a he! Ahahah,” said Balotelli.

Balotelli scored his first Liverpool goal as the Reds were 2-1 winners against Ludogorets in the Champions League at Anfield on Wednesday night.

And Brendan Rodgers will presumably hope that Balotelli stops mucking about ahead of a difficult trip to West Ham United on Saturday.
