Mario Balotelli really does not like Manchester United.

Ahead of today’s Premier League match at Anfield, the Italian striker, who is currently on loan at AC Milan has urged Liverpool to “destroy” United in a tweet he sent out this morning.

Balotelli and United do have some history. It was during the 6-1 demolition in 2011 that scored for United’s rivals Manchester City in, and then unveiled the infamous “Why Always Me?” T-shirt.

Then last season, Balotelli took to Twitter to write “United…lol” after United were thrashed 5-3 by Leicester City in September 2014.

It has been a season to forget for the maverick forward this season, he has not played since September after suffering a back injury. 

One glaring error in that tweet, however. Balotelli used the term “ex team-mates” for Liverpool. Balotelli is only at AC Milan on loan. Has he revealed that he will not return to Merseyside?
