Balotelli, Victor Moses make list of Liverpool’s worst signings

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has named the Reds' worst signings during his time at Anfield. 

In his list, Rodgers has included Inter Milan right-back Victor Moses as well as Brescia forward Mario Balotelli. Mose signed for Liverpool in 2013 from rivals Chelsea on a season-long loan. The Nigerian played on the left midfield role and netted just a single goal in 19 appearances.

"It seemed unthinkable for Chelsea to let a decent player in Moses play for rivals Liverpool on loan in the 2013/14 season. However, any concerned Chelsea fan needn’t have worried as Moses really struggled to make an impact in a season on Merseyside," he said, as quoted by the talkSPORT. 

"Moses scored on his Reds debut, a well-placed finish at Swansea, but that was his only goal for Liverpool. Those slightly more obsessive Kopites will remember Moses essentially missing an open goal with a fresh air shot on that infamous ‘Crystanbul’ night where Liverpool blew a 3-0 lead to draw at Crystal Palace.

"It was 3-3 when Moses missed but if that went in they would have won the match and maybe, just maybe, Liverpool could have lifted the title that season…"

Mario Balotelli, Christian Benteke, Alberto Moreno, Adam Bogdan, Javier Manquillo, Dejan Lovren, Tiago Ilori, Alberto Moreno, Luis Alberto, Nuri Sahin, and Lazar Markovic were other names to be included in Rodgers' list.
