Balotteli dresses as Batman Villain Bane

Mario Balotelli appears to be weighing up his options for Liverpool’s Halloween party after posing as Batman villain Bane on Instagram. Can you beat that??

The Liverpool striker is no stranger to goofing around, so the Italy international will be expected to raise the stakes for this year’s party.

Balotelli, who moved to Anfield in a £16m deal from AC Milan this summer, used a mask and his Liverpool training kit to morph into Batman’s nemesis.

“Mb459 #bane #ynwa #puma ! Lol,” Balotelli posted on Instagram.

Liverpool supporters will hope that Balotelli can demonise the West Ham United defence when they travel to Upton Park on Saturday evening.
