AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has offered advice to Liverpool firebrand Luis Suarez.

Balotelli has seen Suarez ­replace him as Public Enemy No.1 and his advice to the Liverpool forward is to turn a deaf ear to the criticism.

Balotelli told the Mirror: "Suarez is now somebody that the whole of England finds ­interesting.

"It doesn't matter if people like him or don't like him, they will always be ­interested in exactly what he is doing. Like they were with me.

"My only advice to him is ignore ­everything that people say about you.

"The only thing Suarez needs to do is concentrate on football."
