Manchester City chief Brian Marwood said that Mario Balotelli is not the sort of role model the EPL champions want people looking up to

The Italian has been involved in bust-ups with teammates, threw a dart at a City youth team player and set off a firework in his own bathroom. Asked about what kind of role model the 22-year-old Balotelli represents, chief football operations officer Marwood said: “I think that it’s important to make a good example.

“I think —And we all know who we are talking about — that you will get people within the system who do not show the right values and the right behaviour.”
