City face up to Balotelli ban

Published Add your comment

Manchester City assistant boss David Platt has hinted that the club will reluctantly accept Mario Balotelli's four-match suspension.

Platt confirmed no talks had taken place amongst the City hierarchy and a final decision would not be made until all relevant parties had an input into discussions.

However, whilst City do have grievances over the manner in which Balotelli's alleged stamp on Scott Parker has been dealt with, Platt accepted the slow-motion pictures "do not look good", and said: "We are likely to be without a player for four games."
