Balotelli, Mancini clash at City training

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and manager Roberto Mancini were involved in an explosive training ground bust-up on Thursday.

The Italy international is understood to have angered Mancini with a late challenge on team-mate Scott Sinclair at the club’s Carrington base.

The 48-year-old confronted the centre-forward and the pair had to be separated by staff before Balotelli left Carrington shortly after.

Balotelli has been involved in altercations at the club’s training ground before, having previously been photographed clashing with Micah Richards.

The striker has been linked with a potential January exit from Manchester City, with AC Milan rumoured to be interested in making a bid.

Until now, Mancini – one of the controversial star’s staunchest defenders – has insisted the 22-year-old would not be sold, but recently indicated Balotelli had to work harder in training.
