Former Manchester City chairman and player Francis Lee believes the club were right to sell controversial striker Mario Balotelli.

The Italy international's move to AC Milan was completed on transfer deadline day earlier this week, bringing to an end his colourful, headline-filled two-and-a-half year spell as a City player.

Asked if he felt the Blues had done the correct thing in cashing in on Balotelli, Lee told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek: "I think it is the right move. He is a talented player with a lot of ability. But the biggest disappointment for me was that he played at the expense of his team-mates. He would stop the game and do a few tricks, or do this, that and the other. You could never rely on him."
