Manchester City won't take action against Mario Balotelli after his meltdown at Liverpool.

The Sun says Balotelli banged the visitors' dressing room door so hard the handle broke.

Balotelli then charged off to find a TV monitor to see the clash with Martin Skrtel that led to referee Martin Atkinson showing him a second yellow card.

Team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov went to calm him down and took the City star back to the dressing room, while the handle was easily replaced without apparent need for repair.

Balotelli and boss Roberto Mancini clearly felt the reaction of Skrtel and the Liverpool players led to him being sent off.

And the striker, 21, will not face any internal disciplinary action despite the third red card of his City career.
