If a Premier League return wasn't enough for Mario Balotelli to keep viewers interested, Liverpool's frontman has now showed off his striking new hairdo.
The Reds signed Balotelli from AC Milan for £16million in the summer, with Brendan Rodgers eager for the Italian to keep his head down and build on his solitary goal against Ludogorets.
And while Rodgers may insist the 24-year-old isn't complicated, the new design must have had his hairdresser perplexed. There have been some suggestions that the tattoo is based on Liverpool's badge, although it does seem coincidental.

The new style, by Daniel Johnson, who has worked with Gareth Bale and Wayne Rooney in the past consists of a bright mohican with asymmetric styles either side.
Balotelli isn't a stranger to a controversial snip, with several other variations displayed over his playing career.
He has sported many mohican style as well as a bleach blond cut when he was in England with Manchester City.
While Balotelli continues to show off his extravagant personality, his on-field performances continue to prosper for new side Liverpool.
The 24-year-old was as a cool as a cucumber as he successfully converted his two penalties during the Reds' dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Middlesbrough on Wednesday.
Balotelli and his team-mates will be looking to make it back-to-back wins on Saturday at Anfield as he hopes to feature in his first Merseyside derby against arch-rivals Everton.
