Mancini delivers canny assessment of Liverpool's Balotelli deal
"For what Mario has achieved, the price paid is about right. For what he could achieve, it's very low," said Mancini.
"At this time, Milan, Liverpool and the player were all happy, so it made sense.
"Mario will not have many more opportunities to demonstrate his worth, I hope he understands that and takes his chance."
