Mario Ballotelli and Roberto Mancini in Training Ground Bust Up
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli appears to have been involved in a training ground bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini.
A picture agency has released photographs it says were taken on Thursday morning of the pair having to be separated by staff and team-mates at Carrington training ground.
City have declined to comment.
Mancini is expected to answer questions about the incident at his media conference on Friday morning.
The pictures appear to show Mancini shouting and gesticulating towards Balotelli.
One photograph shows the pair face to face with Mancini pulling Balotelli's training bib, while in another, the striker appears to be pulled away by a member of staff.
The 22-year-old has been involved in a series of controversies during his time at the club.
