Mancini sorry to see Balotelli go

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini will probably answer questions about Mario Balotelli for the last time as he meets media to preview Sunday's clash with Liverpool.

For the past two-and-a-half years, Mancini's pre-match press conferences have regularly been dominated by talk of the controversial striker and his various misdemeanours. That will soon no longer be the case after Mancini bade the 22-year-old a sad farewell earlier this week before Balotelli signed for AC Milan for a move reportedly worth £19million, rising to £22million.

"We are very sorry for him because he leaves the club but we hope Mario can continue to improve and continues to work hard because he is a top, top player," Mancini said.
