Arsenal Icon Keown Believes Brendan Rodgers Making Balotelli A Scapegoat

Arsenal hero Martin Keown feels Brendan Rodgers is making Mario Balotelli a scapegoat at Liverpool.

Mario Balotelli 32

The striker was dropped for victory over West Bromwich Albion yesterday.

Before kickoff, Keown said: “I am a bit surprised that Mario Balotelli’s been dropped.

“His performances haven’t been great but in terms of building the relationship with the manager, today against West Brom is a game that Liverpool should win and there would be opportunity for that.

“He hasn’t scored the goals you are looking for, but it is a collective problem. By dropping him today, it suggests that he is the problem.”
