Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has accepted a two-week fine and dropped his appeal against the club, the Premier League champions have confirmed

The Italy international’s lawyers were due to present their case to a Premier League tribunal yesterday against a club fine. City imposed a fine of two weeks’ wages — a figure reported to be around £340,000 — on Balotelli last season for on-field indiscipline, causing his unrest. 

But a brief statement from City yesterday read: “After amicable talks between the parties, as a sign of respect for Roberto Mancini, the supporters and the club, Mario Balotelli has chosen to accept a two week fine levied upon him by the club and withdraw his disciplinary appeal, which was due to be heard by a Premier League panel.”
