Roberto Mancini has admitted he would "probably" sell Mario Balotelli this summer after the striker lost the plot again in Manchester City's costly Barclays Premier League defeat at Arsenal.

City boss Mancini also appeared to suggest Balotelli would not play again for him this season, although the club later claimed he said that because he expected the Football Association to throw the book at the controversial 21-year-old.

Balotelli will serve a ban of at least three matches after his sending off in the 1-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium and Mancini seemed to call on the FA to take further action against his own player for a knee-high challenge on Alex Song that went unpunished.
