Balotelli had several run-ins with Mancini at City.
But he insisted: â€śI rarely hear from Mancini. I had fouled someone and he got angry, thatâ€™s all. We made up afterwards. Who do I prefer between Mancini and Mourinho? As a person Mancini, in football terms Mourinho.
â€śI argued a lot with Mourinho, but I also remember moments of great joy and we had a good laugh. We worked hard with him and played with great intensity, as it was what he wanted.
â€śI donâ€™t really talk to anyone from Inter now, though I sometimes hear from Materazzi or Wesley Sneijder. Marco has always been close to me and we never came to blows, unlike what some people said. He couldnâ€™t have punched me anyway!â€ť
