Former Liverpool forward El-Hadji Diouf has made an astonishing accusation by claiming Steven Gerrard was to blame for Mario Balotelli’s demise at Anfield.
The Italian striker joined Liverpool from Milan for £16m two years ago under former manager Brendan Rodgers, but returned to Milan a season later after scoring only four goals in 28 matches.
“Apart from the fans, who were fantastic, and some players who I got on really well with, I didn’t like the club,” said Balotelli over the weekend.
The 26-year-old scored twice in a 3-2 win against Marseille on his debut for Nice in Ligue 1 on Sunday after finding the net once in 20 outings for Milan last season.
“I told him (Balotelli) not to go to Liverpool,” Diouf is quoted as saying by French sports newspaper L’Equipe.

    “Gerrard is a jealous man who doesn’t like men of character. “
“Mario is a good person that you should listen to. He’s not a guy who is going to cause problems in the dressing room.
“There are a lot of things that have been made up about him. People tell tales about him, but they’re often a load of rubbish.”
