Cape Town - Liverpool's new bad-boy striker, Mario Balotelli, has been on a mission to learn more about the club and the city.

The Liverpool Echo report that Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the Italian striker has been taking Liverpool history lessons.

Balotelli, well traveled despite his young age, is attempting to immerse himself in all things Liverpool as he looks to settle down in Merseyside.

“He’s a boy who has really looked into the history of the club and he understands the great strikers of the past,” said Rodgers.

“Remember he’s still young, he still wants to learn, he still needs to learn and that’s the beauty of it for me.

“When I spoke to him when I first met him he still had this keenness to want to learn and when you see his work against Ludogorets, he put his body on the line and he needs to do more of that.

“I think that will come when he gets fitter and getting into good positions will allow him to score goals.

“But he’s well in tune with the history, not only of the club, but of Liverpool.”
