Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini and his player, Mario Balotelli earlier today, were involved in a training ground spat at the club’s Carrington ground.
Balotelli, who is not new to having confrontations with his coach and club, reportedly incurred Mancini’s wrath when he launched a late tackle on his team mate, Scott Sinclair during an afternoon training session.
Mancini confronted Balottelli about the mistimed tackle but the 22-year old reacted furiously and before anyone could fathom what was going on, the Italians had engaged in a shoving match with the city gaffer asking his misfit striker to leave the training ground.
It took the intervention of ground staff to separate the duo as other City players watched the drama with bewilderment. Shortly after the bust-up, the pair left the training ground separately.
