London - Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli will not face legal action over reports he threatened a woman for taking photographs of his Ferrari sports car, police announced on Tuesday.

Greater Manchester Police were called to investigate last Thursday after reports of "threatening behaviour" involving the 24-year-old Italy international, who is thought to have been visiting his mother at the time.

But after speaking to the woman who made the call, police found no reason to launch an investigation.

"Police were called to Pewsey Road, Wythenshawe just after 15:00 on Thursday 23 October 2014, following reports of threatening behaviour," said a spokesman for Greater Manchester Police.

"Officers have since spoken to the complainant and no criminal offences were disclosed and no crime recorded. No further action will be taken."

Balotelli has experienced a difficult start to his Liverpool career since arriving from AC Milan during the close season, scoring only one goal in his first 11 appearances.
