City accept Balotelli ban

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has accepted a violent conduct charge against him and subsequently a four-match ban.

The Football Association confirmed to Press Association Sport that City informed them they would not be challenging the four-match suspension, punishment for Balotelli's apparent stamp on Tottenham's Scott Parker at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Balotelli misses the Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Liverpool and the Barclays Premier League encounters with Everton, Fulham and Aston Villa.
