Liverpool star Jordan Henderson has reacted to the shirt swapping controversy currently enveloping Mario Balotelli, suggesting that no one in the dressing room has even discussed it, as reported by the Daily Star.
Liverpool collapsed to a 3-0 loss against Real Madrid in the Champions League last night, and were losing by that scoreline by the time the interval came around.
Balotelli was later shown to have swapped shirts with Real star Pepe at half time, something that people have suggested is a sign of a poor attitude from the Italian international.
However, vice captain Henderson is of the belief that it wasn’t a topic of discussion in the dressing room at any point yesterday.
Henderson said: “It hasn’t been discussed in the dressing room.
“I don’t think anyone knew he had even done it. It’s certainly the first I’ve heard of it.”
The Italian international has struggled to settle since his £16 million move to Anfield during the summer transfer window.
In comparison with former Reds hitman Luis Suarez, he has looked disinterested at times, and repeatedly missed opportunities against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend when it looked easier to score.
