Prandelli backs Mancini's stand on Balotelli

Cesare Prandelli has defended Roberto Mancini's stance on controversial forward Mario Balotelli.

Mancini recently criticised Balotelli again for threatening to throw away his talent, and the former Inter forward looks likely to leave Man City in the near future.

Prandelli told Rai Sport: "Mancini is absolutely right, Balotelli must listen to him, I agree with him. Everything depends on Mario, however. Coaches can try to stimulate and negotiate with you but everything must start from him.

"Returning to Italy could help him. It's important for him to have continuity; the city or the country is not the problem."
