|Mancini Plays Down Balotelli Clash by HyconBc: 1:05pm On Jan 04, 2013|
“Mario made a tackle on his team-mate that I would
prefer to see in a game and not against a team-mate,”
Mancini told reporters.
“I asked him to leave the pitch – he said 'no' so I
moved him off. That’s all that happened and it was
nothing more than that.
"Nothing has changed between Mario and me and my
thoughts have not changed about him and these
things happen from time to time.
“Will Mario have more chances? I will give him 100
chances as long as I can see him trying to improve
and working hard for this football club.”
It is not the first time the two have clashed during
their time together and Mancini admits he did briefly
lose his temper with the 22-year-old.
He added: "For two seconds, yes. Three, four seconds
later no. He didn’t want to leave pitch. No fight."
The manager said there would be no disciplinary
action over the incident and said he considered it to
be over and dealt with.
