Greater Manchester Police drop their case against Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who was accused of threatening behaviour.

Greater Manchester Police have decided to drop their case against Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who was accused of threatening a woman.

The 24-year-old was alleged to have used threatening behaviour when a woman, who was accompanied by her daughter, took a photo of his Ferrari in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester.

Police investigated the incident after they were contacted by a resident, but the case has now been closed after the woman involved decided not to make a formal complaint, according to BBC Sport.

On the pitch, Balotelli has been under scrutiny after scoring just one goal for Liverpool following his summer move from AC Milan for £16m.
