Newcastle vs Manchester City: Arrogant Mario Balotelli To Be Axed By Man City Coach

December 24, 2010 By Angela Asante
Mario Balotelli has been making some negative noise in the news lately. The player is now set to miss the Sky Blues’ Newcastle United vs Manchester City match through a decision from Mancini.
According to the manager, Mario Balotelli’s terrible performance in Man City’s home defeat against Everton isn’t worthy of being replicated. For this reason, the Italian boss is strongly considering dropping the ex-Inter Milan star whose behaviour appears to be unacceptable.

“If Mario deserves to play, he will play. If he doesn’t deserve to play, then he won’t play. If Mario doesn’t work, he doesn’t play,” Manchester City’s Roberto Mancini told The Sun as he explained the logic of his decision.

“It is not important for Mario to have good technique and to be a good player. If we want to improve, we need everybody to give 200 per cent.

“Mario [Balotelli] is a special player, but you’ve got to put strength and heart into your performances.”

A few days ago, Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli was voted Europe’s best young player as he beat competition from players such as Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere and Atletico Madrid’s De Gea. Following his feat, Balotelli not only disregarded the existence of Wilshere in football but also claimed to be very close to Lionel Messi in terms of
greatness.

Evidently, the 20-year-old forward’s comments weren’t well received by the majority of football’s public. Now, offended fans will be delighted by the way Roberto Mancini is dealing with the “arrogant” lad. No Newcastle match for Balotelli this weekend.
