Carragher hopes Chinese club pays fortune for worst-ever Liverpool signing Balotelli

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has labelled Mario Balotelli as the worst signing in the club's history.

Balotelli moved to Anfield in a £16million move from AC Milan in 2014, but failed to make any impact in his first season with the club.

He was subsequently loaned back to AC Milan in the summer of 2015, and Carragher is now hoping that the Reds recoup their money by selling the Italian striker to a club in the Chinese Super League.

"I can't believe we signed Mario Balotelli!" he said in a Q&A for the Daily Mail.

"The thing with Balotelli is everyone always says it's the off-the-field antics, but I wouldn't care if he was doing it on the pitch!

"People tell me he's got talent but I can't remember him having a good game."

"I'm praying with all the money in the Chinese Super League that someone is going to buy him after his loan,"

"I don't think anyone in the Premier League will take him. He has to be number one with (Alberto) Aquilani and (El-Hadji) Diouf (as the club's worst signings)."
