Martin Skrtel says that the Reds have faith in Balotelli

Martin Skrtel, centre back, said that players at Liverpool believe in Mario Balotelli regardless of his bad start with the Reds, and price per head agents are also confident that the Italian striker can do a great job at Anfield, even if it takes a bit of time for him to show his full potential with the team.
On Saturday, the world famous striker had another disappointing outing when Liverpool took on Hull City as good saves and missed opportunities from Eldin Jakupovic, visiting keeper, helped Hull City draw with the Reds 0-0.
Balotelli was only able to score once since he moved from Milan, and this took place in the UEFA Champions League against Ludogorets.
Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool manager, strongly defended the Italian striker, and Skrtel fully agrees – saying that the fellow players are confident that Balotelli will prove to be a very good asset to the team – something that many price per head agents fully agree with, as they know very well just how talented the striker is.
Skrtel said: “He is working hard and showed some good moments. Unfortunately we couldn’t score the goal. I feel sorry for him.
“He is working hard in training, he is working hard in the game. He just hasn’t got the goals.
“We just believe in him. We will be supporting him and just hope he will start scoring.”
This season, the Reds were not able to score for only the second time, but their clean sheet was the second one that the team had.
The team’s shut-out did not satisfy Skrtel, who was not very happy at all with the fact that they dropped two points, and neither were many fans.
He added: “It’s nice to get a clean sheet but we didn’t get the three points, so that’s not good enough. We played football for the points. We could have won and it’s disappointing.
Fans all over the world that follow the Reds fully trust Balotelli, and believe that he can make a very big difference at the club, but are also aware that it could take some time for the player to do this. Perhaps the striker still has to get used to life with Liverpool, but many experts believe that he should be able to settle in soon enough if this is the case.
