“I spoke to Balotelli, but these are things between me and the player,” agent Raiola told Sky Sport Italia.
“The lad was disappointed about what happened. I didn’t see the incident, but as Mancini said these are things that can happen.
“Is Balotelli irritable because he wants to leave the Premier League? No and I don’t even feel like discussing this. If a player wants to go, then I don’t think he needs to do things like that. He could calmly sit around a table with the City directors if there was this intention from both sides.
“Mancini said he won’t play again this season because he expects a lengthy ban, that is all.”
