Raheem Sterling scored within 3 minutes of his debut for Manchester City in a friendly against AS Roma today and Mario Balotelli took to Twitter to congratulate the ex Liverpool man. The Italian didn’t stop there and tweeted two more times calling for Liverpool fans to also support Sterling despite the manner in which he left the Merseyside club.
A risky move from Mario Balotelli, whose Anfield career is already hanging by a thread as the Italian scored just one goal for Liverpool last season and was mostly restricted to a bench role by Brendan Rodgers.
