Mario Balotelli slams critics in bizarre video on Instagram
Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has criticised his detractors in a video posted to his Instagram account.
The 24-year-old uploaded the clip, in which he appears to attack those who have questioned his performances at Anfield, on Tuesday evening.
Speaking directly into the camera, the Italian said: "Do you know me? Did you ever talk to me, personally? Do you know what I've been through in my life?
"You just saw me play football on the pitch so, man, shut up."
Balotelli joined Liverpool from AC Milan for £16 million last August but has only managed four goals in 20 appearances across all competitions. He has scored just once in the Barclays Premier League.
