Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli admits he's not enjoying Manchester life.

While the 20-year-old maintains that he has no problem with manager Roberto Mancini or his team-mates, it is living in Manchester that he does not enjoy.

"I am not well in Manchester, I don't like the city," Balotelli told Sky Sport Italia.

"I'm happy with the coach and within the team, but you can't have everything in life.

"I don't miss Milan, I miss Brescia, my home. I miss my family and my friends, but I think this experience in England will help me grow as an individual."
