Mancini moves on from Balotelli incident

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini claims he does not always forgive controversial striker Mario Balotelli for his misdemeanours - but says his latest one was "nothing".

Mancini is prepared to give Balotelli "another 100 chances" after playing down this week's confrontation between the pair on the training ground. Mancini was photographed grappling with his fellow Italian in a training-ground bust-up, the latest in a long line of controversies involving the 22-year-old forward.

The manager insists the matter was soon over and was blown out of proportion because of the player involved and the pictures made the incident look bad. Mancini said: "I don't always forgive him. Sometimes he was out for three or four weeks. I hope he can understand. Yesterday was nothing, compared to what he did other times. It is finished."
