Manchester City coach Angelo Gregucci cannot guarantee Mario Balotelli staying beyond the January market.

Manchester City coach Angelo Gregucci cannot guarantee Mario Balotelli staying beyond the January market.

The controversial striker was left out of City's squad for the 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, after reports suggested the 22-year-old was out until the early hours the night before.

"Mancini has chosen to give a signal, it is his right to make choices," Gregucci told Italy's Sky Sport 24.

"Perhaps during the past week, something was missing, but [Balotelli] is ready to take back the shirt of Manchester City.

"Will he remain? It's not for me to say, I only know that it [the situation] is clearly recoverable."
