Redknapp happy to not have Mario problem

Published Add your comment

Harry Redknapp thinks Mario Balotelli's off-field antics are a "real problem" for Manchester City and is thankful he does not have similar difficulties with reformed bad boy Emmanuel Adebayor.

Balotelli has gained cult status among football fans for his japery since joining Manchester City from Inter Milan two years ago. The enigmatic striker, who also had a series of disciplinary problems at Milan, set part of his house on fire after letting off fireworks indoors, has been accused of throwing darts at his own team-mates.

"Balotelli is not my problem, but he is a problem," the Tottenham manager said. "He doesn't seem to want to behave too well does he? It's a real problem. He has bags of talent but I suppose when you sign him you know what you're getting because (former Inter boss) Jose Mourinho had him and he bombed him."
