Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has admitted Mario Balotelli cannot be trusted to make the Blues' Premier League title dream come true.
The enigmatic Balotelli's ability is beyond question, but the 21-year-old is just as capable of the bizarre and he made an impromptu appearance at an Inter Milan press conference during the week, when Andrea Stramaccioni was unveiled as the new manager of his former club.
With Sergio Aguero sidelined with an injury and Carlos Tevez striving for match fitness, Balotelli looks set to be handed an increased role in City's championship challenge, but Mancini knows he cannot rely on the Italy forward. "I don't trust Mario. No-one trusts Mario," he said.
