Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini singled out Mario Balotelli for praise after Sergio Aguero's title winning goal yesterday.

Mancini was particularly pleased that Aguero and Balotelli should be the players who combined for the crucial goal.

"I am happy because Mario did the assist," the Italian said. "It is important for him to finish this season like this.

"It is also right that Sergio scored the last goal."
