Balotelli happy to train at Melwood on Liverpool's day off

Mario Balotelli is happy to take extra training at Liverpool in order to get up-to-speed with the rest of his new teammates.

The Daily Mail says Balotelli has shown his desire to get his Liverpool career up and running as soon as possible after working on his fitness at the club's training ground on his own.

The £16million signing is keen to play a part in the club's title ambitions and was put through his paces by the club's coaching staff while the rest of his new team-mates had a rest day following their 3-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City on Monday night.

Balotelli's drills included some running and ball skills as he steps up his bid to make his debut at Premier League rivals Tottenham on Sunday.
