London, July 13 (ANI): Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that he has informed Mario Balotelli to start looking for another club in order to revive his flagging career.

The 25-year-old maverick forward, who endured an unsuccessful loan spell at Milan last season, returned to Anfield for pre-season training but faces huge competition from several first-choice players like Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Danny Ings.

Reflecting on the matter, Klopp said the Italian international was not at the stage of his career where he could be battling with four or five other players to find himself in the playing XI, the Guardian reported.

Italian Serie A club Sampdoria have expressed their interest in Balotelli, who scored just three goals in his 23 appearances for Milan. (ANI)
