Mancini on Balotelli sale

Roberto Mancini says he would probably have blocked the sale of Mario Balotelli had he still been in charge at Inter.

The Italian was sold to Mancini's Manchester City over the summer after a turbulent spell in Milan under Jose Mourinho.

"I love Balotelli," Mancini told Max magazine in an interview. "Sure, he's young and like all youngsters he makes mistakes, but I never get upset with him.

"His sale? I wasn't at Inter for the last two years so I don't know what happened," continued the 1990 World Cup player.

The Rossoneri are top of the table thanks to Ibra's sensational goal to defeat Fiorentina 1-0 last night and he has complained of feeling ‘worn out' after 16 consecutive club starts.

“I do feel very tired, especially in the final minutes of each game. Perhaps I have played too much and if we had Pippo Inzaghi and Alexandre Pato then I could've rested a bit,” said the Swede.
