Mario Balotelli and Roberto Mancini come to blows on training pitch
The Manchester City career of Mario Balotelli could be over after the striker was today photographed in a scuffle with Roberto Mancini on the training ground.

Balotelli has already been involved in a number of high-profile incidents since arriving in England although fracas with his compatriot and manager could prove decisive in seeing the Italian leave Manchester City and sign for a new club.
Sources claim the incident was a “storm in a tea cup” although Mancini was clearly unhappy with Balotelli’s challenge on Scott Sinclair in training, with the pictures showing the City coaching team dragging Balotelli away from his boss.
It comes at a bad time considering that Sergio Aguero could miss the next few weeks with a hamstring injury, although Mancini might have already been considering an exit strategy for someone who didn’t perform in the recent Manchester derby.
The Man City manager has previously stated that the striker might never play for the club again, although it’s probable that this will be the case after this training ground bust-up and it might be a blessing in disguise for Mancini.
