Mario Balotelli Will Be Fit For Liverpool Clash
Manchester City's debutant, Mario Balotelli scored the winner against FC Timisoara last night but left the pitch limping after receiving treatment and was later seen with strapping around his knee.
Not to worry
Mancini insisted he had no concerns over Balotelli's fitness ahead of Monday's Premier League clash with Liverpool insisting...
"We think it is not serious. It was probably just a kick, but it is not a problem. He had a great debut and I think it is the first time he could show what he can do. I'm very happy that he scored."
"He is a good player, but it is important that he gets to know his team-mates. He needs to improve and get to know everybody. It was the first time he had played with the team, but he will get better."
Liverpool travel to the City of Manchester City Stadium in three days time, with the game being broadcast live on Sky Sports.
