Before Man City’s Europa League second-leg with Dynamo Kyiv last night…
“”If it stays 11 versus 11, we would have probably won, but he picked up a red card for doing something really stupid.
“The problem for Mario is that he thinks he could be a fantastic player, but when he does something stupid like that, it is difficult for me, difficult for him and difficult for the team.”
Roberto Mancini – who also hinted that Balotelli will be dropped for City’s Premier League game with Chelsea this Sunday.
City won 1-0 on the night thanks to a goal from Aleksandar Kolarov, but it wasn’t enough to overturn Kyiv’s 2-0 lead from the first-leg – with Balotelli’s 40th-minute dismissal further hindering what would prove to be an insurmountable task.
What a prannet.
