Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has refused to respond to comments made by former striker Mario Balotelli.
In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Balotelli covered various topics including his time at Liverpool and why he believed that it didn’t work.
While he spoke positively about the club, the coach and his time on Merseyside, his comments about Liverpool’s system and formation not suiting him unsurprisingly made the headlines.
It was translated into a dig at Rodgers, and the media went looking for a response from the Liverpool boss on Friday.
“I’ve always said I won’t be speaking on any transfers, in or out,” Rodgers said, according to Sky Sports.
“But it’s a good move for Mario. It suits both parties. He gets a season of playing football back in his homeland.”
Balotelli joined Liverpool in a £16m deal from Milan last summer, but netted just four times in 28 appearances for the club.
He has now returned to San Siro with the Rossoneri on a season-long loan deal, with Liverpool paying part of his wages while Milan have no mandatory option to buy at the end of the agreement.
