Government and pet PIG blamed for Balotelli Liverpool form

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli's inconsistent start to the season is being blamed on the UK government! The £16m summer signing has been prevented his pet pig - named 'Super' due to the government's policy on importing animals.

Balotelli must register himself as a breeder before obtaining a certificate from a vet in Italy which verifies that the pig is healthy enough to travel.

The Sun reports Balotelli has not given up hope of bringing over the black spotted pig and has told his teammates that he will do what it takes.
