Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli faces a fine if reports he broke a club curfew are true, manager Roberto Mancini said.

Balotelli allegedly went on a night out in Liverpool which lasted until the early hours of Friday morning despite having a game against Bolton on Saturday afternoon. That would be a breach of Mancini's rules and the City boss has said he will investigate.

Mancini, speaking after Balotelli started and scored in City's 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium, said: "This is Mario, I don't know whether this is true. I only heard about this at the stadium because I never read the newspaper. Tomorrow I will speak with him - I am really disappointed about this."
