Who Said Manchester City’s “Super Mario” [Balotelli] Was Heading For A Transfer?

December 28, 2010 By Angela Asante
Manchester City’s “troublesome” Mario Balotelli is going nowhere during the January transfer window, according to agent Mino Raiola. The ex-Internazionale star’s future is at Eastlands... at least, for now.
Following his rather poor display against Everton last Monday – a game which Manchester City lost – rumours that Mario Balotelli had enough of life in England intensified. The Italian international of Ghanaian origins was eventually dropped by Coach Roberto Mancini for the Sky Blues’ next match which they won 3-1 against Newcastle thanks to a Carlos Tevez-inspired performance.

It’s actually been rumoured that the 20-year-old wants to quit Eastlands to join Internazionale’s local rivals AC Milan anytime soon. So when asked about Mario Balotelli’s unwanted behaviour at Manchester City, former Inter Milan boss Mancini told The Sun last Friday:

“He must improve his situation and smile. I don’t know why he does not look happy. Manchester is not like Milan. But, he has to accept it.”

This week though, Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola spoke to Tuttomercatoweb.com to respond to the transfer rumours surrounding the controversial youngster. He said:

“I’ve got no comment to make. I have nothing to say. For me, all this is just rubbish. [Mario] Balotelli hasn’t said anything.”

Indeed, Mario Balotelli certainly answered the public with the best reply as his hat-trick in Manchester City’s 4-0 demolition of Aston Villa fired the Sky Blues at the top of the English Premier League for at least a few hours.

With this performance from “Super Mario”, there’s a reason why Manchester City fans can enter 2011 with a peaceful smile on their face. Blackpool is next on the Sky Blues’ agenda and that match has been scheduled for January 1.
