Exclusive – Liverpool are making same mistakes with Balotelli as they made with me, says Anfield flop

first_imgRyan Babel fears Liverpool are making the same mistakes with Mario Balotelli as they made with him.The flying Dutchman arrived at Anfield in July 2007 for a fee of £11.5million, making him the club’s third most expensive signing ever at the time.He was rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, but made fewer than 100 Premier League appearances in three-and-a-half years at the club before a cut-price move to German side Hoffenheim.But he believes he wasn’t the only one to blame for his failings on Merseyside and fears history is repeating itself with Balotelli, who is struggling to adapt following his £16m summer move from AC Milan.Babel told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “People think every player should be treated the same, but sometimes you have exceptional players who need a different approach to get the best out of them, and that is Mario.“I don’t know him personally, but judging from the outside he should have different support. We know he has potential and is a good player. He has shown that before at other teams.“If I look at myself, people said in the past I didn’t show it [my best form] every week.“I also felt I didn’t really have the optimum support to get the best out of me, so I think maybe it’s the same with Mario. But I still believe in his quality.”last_img read more
