"What a master stroke announcing this before tonights game. Genius from BR, the clubs psychiatrist and the gang. If this rustles city and we come away with 3 points the 16mil will be paid off before he has even kicked a ball!"

"C'MON YOU BALOTELLI!!! Super excited to have him apart of the squad. This lad has the world at his hands, he just needs to make the most of it. I know there are a lot of people with doubts about his attitude, but I'm glad we're giving him a chance. We all learn from our mistakes."

"He's leaving a very racist, different italy in coming here. This team is a perfect fit for him, in the sense he's not competing with major egos from players/coaches. Notice LFC players always talk its about the team. Rodgers has installed that mentality, and it keeps players and the dressing room in check. Balo knows what needs to be done and I'm sure he'll be out to prove a point"

"This boy can play, and needs a good manager to mentor him. BR is the right man for the job. One thing that I'd bet on is this fella will not leave LFC for bigger teams in Spain or anywhere. He will remain loyal for the sake of the fans, especially how BR and LFC has given him a second chance at playing in england. Go proof all critics wrong from now! YNWA! "

"Good signing. After losing Suarez we needed a character and we have one here. I think this piece of the jigsaw should get us top four again and a trophy (a real one, not the Capital Cup, that is). If we can now offload Barndoor Borini for 14 mill we got a world class striker for 2 mill net. Good business."

"If our summer spending ends here I can honestly say I'm over the moon with our activity in the TW. We've got fantastic depth and a number of very exciting and capable players. Whilst I wouldn't say no to a back up keeper, I feel any further additions to the side would only threaten the chemistry of the team that shone last year. Oh and for 16 mill, this guy is a steal. Baggage or no baggage. "
