Mancini ignores Mario/Richards bust up (AUDIO)

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has brushed off the training ground row involving the ever controversial Mario Balotelli and defender Micah Richards.

Be sure to catch the latest episode of the Ultimate Sport Podcast - as we look ahead to all the Premier League football, reflect on Jonny Wilkinson's glistening career, as well as preview Carl Froch's bout with Andre Ward.

The two clashed during Thursday's training in an incident described as not serious by their manager, who insists he's put it behind him and is fully concentrated on Sunday's potentially mammoth clash with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

The Italian is wary of Gunners' striker Robin van Persie, who has scored 33 league goals in 2011 so far, but believes in his forwards to pose even more of a threat than their opponents on Sunday.
