Balotelli agent in referee warning

Brought to you by William Hill


Mario Balotelli's agent has warned his player could quit English football over what he believes is unfair treatment from referees.

The controversial Manchester City striker is facing a four-match ban after being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association following a clash with Tottenham's Scott Parker on Sunday, the latest in a catalogue of incidents both on and off the field since the Italian joined City in August 2010.

Agent Mino Raiola admitted the 21-year-old feels his reputation may be counting against him and, tempering earlier remarks made to Italian media, told Sky Sports News: "Mario doesn't want to leave the club. It's fantastic, he loves it and feels at home. But if every week some referee (does this) with Mario, maybe you say, 'That's enough' and he goes to another country."
