Balotelli played for Mancini at City and Inter Milan.
â€śI said goodbye to everyone at the meal in London before the game at Queens Park Rangers,â€ť the youngster told mcfc.co.uk in a farewell interview. â€śIt was a very emotional for me.
â€śI spoke with Roberto before I went to speak to the players. We spoke for some time about lots of things. He was sad, and I was too. But it was a good conversation.
â€śI love Roberto, he has been very important for my career, and I will always thank him for having trust and faith in me.â€ť
