Balotelli demands Man City talks

Under fire Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is hopeful that he can resurrect his City career, despite earning huge criticism for his on and off the field antics. Roberto Mancini said yesterday that the Italian "probably" would never play for the club again.

However, the striker is confident that he can win over Mancini and stay at the Etihad Stadium for another year.

"At the end of the season I will speak with the club and we'll see," Balotelli said.

"I'm very sorry for what happened and for the disappointment caused to City."
