Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and Coach Roberto Mancini have been involved in a training ground altercation.
Photographs from the British Press show the Italian striker confronting his boss at the club's Carrington training base this afternoon, with teammates having to drag the 22-year-old off of the former Inter tactician.
It is believed that the pair confronted each other after Balotelli made a reckless challenge in a training game.
The incident will once again throw into question the young forward's future at the Premier League club, with reports suggesting that he could make a move back to Serie A in January.
