Mancini could recall Balotelli for 'title-deciding' Manchester Derby

   Apr 27, 12:47 pm

London, Apr 27(ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has said he could recall eccentric Italian striker Mario Balotelli to the team for the all important Derby against old foes Manchester United.

Mancini has done a U-turn and could start controversial striker Balotelli in his first game back from a three-match ban he received after he received a red card against their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, which left City eight points adrift of United.

"Despite some stupid things he has done, Mario has done some important things, like his double strike at Old Trafford this season," The Sun quoted Mancini, as saying.With him anything anything is possible. It's difficult to say today if I will recall Balotelli but everyone is available and I will make my choice on Sunday," he added.

"It's like a family when a child does stupid things. The affection of the parents is still there. He's young and he commits big mistakes that can put the team in difficulty. But I still think he has great talent and I hope he will be a City player next season. It's all in his hands," he said. (ANI)
