Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher claims that the trio of Alberto Aquilani, Mario Balotelli, and El Hadji Diouf are the worst signings in Liverpool’s history.
The 38-year-old had been involved with Senegalese Diouf in some heated exchange of words both on and off the pitch in the past and the former England international thinks it was a mistake to he wore the Reds colours but also wonder how Balotelli got to the club.
Carragher was asked by the DailyMail who he thought was Liverpool’s worst signing during your time at the club and he said: ‘There’s been a few. El Hadji Diouf has got to be up there.’
‘Alberto Aquilani would have to be up there as well. We spent a lot of money on him. He was signed injured, he left injured and I can’t remember him not being injured.
‘I can’t believe we signed Mario Balotelli! The thing with Balotelli is everyone always says it’s the off-the-field antics, but I wouldn’t care if he was doing it on the pitch.
‘People tell me he’s got talent but I can’t remember him having a good game. I’m praying with all the money in the Chinese Super League that someone is going to buy him after his loan. I don’t think anyone in the Premier League will take him. He has to be No 1 with Aquilani and Diouf.’
