"Wonderful news to have that edgy, talented & unpredictable player in the squad. Welcome to LFC Mario. The transfer comittee, BR & FSG have done an incredible job to pack our ranks with hungry, talented winners. There will always be those that have nothing better to do in their bitter world but to make poorly judged negative comments about all LFC do; thankfully, no-one pays any notice to them."
