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.
