Man City pair Balotelli, Silva won't make season kickoff

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and Spanish star David Silva are unlikely to make the start of the Premier League season.

The pair only reported for pre-season training last week after Euro 2012 and were marked absent against Limerick.

City coach David Platt said: "They are behind the other lads. We don't know if they will be ready to start games."
