Man City boss Mancini: Balotelli will return to Premier League

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini feels AC Milan signing Mario Balotelli will return to the Premier League.

Balotelli was box office during his turbulent 2½-year stay with Manchester City and his exploits will never be forgotten.

But his former boss reckons English football may not have seen the last of Super Mario. Asked if he could return one day, Mancini said: "Why not? Mario is only 22, so I think so.

"Anyway, he'll probably miss the press and the paparazzi in the next year!

"For now it is easier for him in Italy.

"It's more important that he's happy and that he can play."
