Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has been snapped in intense conversation with Mario Balotelli at training this week.

The Daily Mail says Mancini had to take time out during Wednesday's training session at Carrington to pull controversial striker Balotelli to one side.

The pair appeared to hold an animated discussion with Mancini waving his finger at Balotelli, in what looked to be a bit of a grilling.

After he was sent off at Arsenal last month, Mancini initially warned that Balotelli would never play for the club again.
