Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini credits his son for helping Mario Balotelli to settle down this season.

Andrea Mancini is the same age as Balotelli and acts as the striker's minder away from the club. The midfielder is currently playing on-loan at Oldham Athletic.

Mancini said: "I have tamed Balotelli thanks to my son.

"The guys are all the same age and understand eachother."
