The controversial striker hasn’t had the best start to life at the 18-time league champions, only scoring one goal in eight appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

His arrival has coincided with a drop in form for the Reds, after they took the Premier League by storm last season, finishing second in table and coming close to winning their first league title since 1990.

Despite this, Balotelli admits he has been impressed by what he has seen from his new teammates since arriving at Anfield.

“I didn’t really know much about the club before coming here, but I’ve been really surprised,” the Italian was quoted by talkSPORT.

“I knew they were a very good team, but I didn’t know they were as good as they are.

“Of course we need to improve many things because we have started off not very good, but I think the players here are amazing. It’s good to see young English players here too: Sterling, Henderson, Lallana. I think the more players you have like this, the better.

“Maybe over time you have got used to not seeing so many good young English players like that, but now we are seeing some – it’s good they are in my team.”

While the 24-year-old is very confident that the Reds can finish in the top four, his main target is to win the English title with his new club.

“You ask me if I think we can finish in the top four – I hope so,” Balotelli continued.

“But I am focused and I want to work on us winning the league, not coming in the first four places.”
