Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling explains how Mario Balotelli has settled quickly at Anfield.

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has revealed that Mario Balotelli has settled in well at the club following his switch from AC Milan.

The Italy international made a £16m move to the Reds last month, and the 19-year-old has said that his new teammate has taken quickly to the rest to the squad.

"He's a good person, a good character and he likes to have a laugh," Sterling told Sky Sports News. "So far so good with Mario, he seems like a really down to earth guy.

"He hasn't had to sing [an initiation song]. At Liverpool, we don't really do that, but I might ask the skipper (Steven Gerrard) about that, because it'd be quite funny.

"I think I'd sing an Alicia Keys song, or maybe 'The World's Greatest' by R Kelly."

Sterling has scored two goals for the Reds this season.
