Manchester City's Mario Balotelli was in the news for the wrong reasons again after a training ground bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini on Wednesday caused yet another controversy, according to a Daily Mail report.

Balotelli was on the receiving end of an angry outburst by Mancini, at the club's Carrington training ground and the player was then asked to leave the field and train on his own.

The 21-year-old striker's latest "act" comes less than 24 hours after he gatecrashed an Inter Milan press conference in Milan held to introduce the Italian club's new interim manager, Andrea Stramaccioni.

Meanwhile, Manchester City dismissed the bust-up as just a minor incident caused by the high standards that the Italian manager has set for his players.
