Photos of Mario Balotelli and Roberto Mancini Bust-Up At Manchester City Training Ground

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini and striker Mario Balotelli reportedly got into a bust-up on the training pitch this morning. The incident happened after Balotelli made a very aggressive tackle against Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair.

According to press reports, Balotelli then got into a face-off with Mancini before the two had to be separated away from each other.

Manchester City faces Watford in the FA Cup this weekend in a match that gives Sinclair and Balotelli an opportunity to gain some much-needed playing time.

    what a pain in the ass. I do hope he stays and drags down the other mercenaries. The wheels seem to be coming off for Man City. They are winning nothing this season.

    A move for Balotelli would be good for everyone involved. Mancini isn’t exactly the best “man manager” out there and Balotelli really should find somewhere that he will play regularly and actually grow. Although, perhaps he doesn’t even want that. The money he’s making in City is probably all he really wants in the end.

    So much talent, but the guy just doesn’t have a level head. When he is slumping, he is a waste of a player. Even when playing well, you are likely to lose a man on the field.

    I don’t know who would want that head case.
