AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli insists Roberto Mancini must remain in charge of Manchester City.

Balotelli says the Italian is the right man to take Man City forwards.

He told The Sun: "Roberto is the right man for the job and winning The FA Cup, I am sure, will mean he keeps the job.

"I was confident of Manchester City winning the title next season, but after the news of Alex Ferguson retiring I am even more confident.

"Roberto is the only man to bring that success for City. The players all like him."
