Liverpool are trying to sell the player
Mario Balotelli doesn't have a future at Liverpool but he'll hope that another club will take a chance on him.
Thus far that hasn't happened. But pictures of him smoking while on holiday won't help his case.
Especially as the new season is only a dozen days away.

The Daily Mail published the photos which were taken in his native Italy.
Most recently, the 25-year-old was linked with a loan move to Turkish champions Besiktas but their manager Senol Gunes was blunt in putting down the rumours.
"Balotelli isn’t in my plans either. I don’t have a favourable view of Mario Balotelli. I have never expressed a positive insight on him," he is quoted as saying.
