Nando Orsi is keeping close tabs on Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini's relationship with Mario Balotelli.

Orsi was Mancini's No2 at Inter and knows Balotelli well.

"It's a story that has lasted a long time, a relationship that we say is a little conflicted as what happens between a father and son," Orsi told TMW.

"This happens in life, sometimes when you grow up you want more. Except then, you realize that he was right and a great parent.

"Balotelli and Mancini is not the problem, perhaps it's more so living in England."
