Mario Bad Boy Balotelli was involved in a training ground confrontation on Thursday with fellow Manchester city team-mate Micah Richards. Witnesses reported that Richards had to be restrained from Balotelli after he was angered by something Mario apparently said.

Manchester City have said that the incident was quickly forgotten about once the the two who are reported to be good friends returned to their dressing rooms. Richards even went on to Twitter to blame their bust up on ‘passion’.

This seemed more like an old couple’s tiff to be honest. Put the handbags down boys.
