Mancini loses patience with Balotelli

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has warned Mario Balotelli's entire career could be over in two years after admitting he would "probably" sell the striker this summer.

Mancini feared Jose Mourinho's claim Balotelli was "unmanagable" would prove prophetic if the 21-year-old continues to be overcome by the kind of madness that got him sent off again in Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Arsenal. The loss dealt what could prove a fatal blow to City's title hopes but could also be Balotelli's final appearance for the club.

Mancini said: "He needs to change his behaviour if he wants to continue to play. I saw in my life a lot of players like Mario that are fantastic, arrogant guys. But, after, they lose all their talent like this and they finish in two or three years. Mario is this way."
