Mancini patience in Balotelli unbroken

Roberto Mancini's patience with Mario Balotelli will continue, the Italian has said.

The two were pictured fighting this week during training, but Mancini has said he will continue to give the troubled forward more chances.

"I will give him another one hundred chances if it is possible. I think that he can change because I am here for this. I give him other chances, for sure," said Mancini

"I think he should understand that the career of a player is very, very short. He is 22 but three, four and five years can pass in one second and I hope the day arrives when he understands his [quality]. I hope for this."
