Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards in training ground bust-up - report

Balotelli and Richards
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was reportedly involved in another bust-up with a team-mate on Thursday.

Balotelli, who has already been involved in several spats since moving to City from Inter Milan last year, got into an argument with Micah Richards at the club's Carrington training ground.

The Italy international and England right-back Richards were restrained by team-mates including captain Vincent Kompany, as well as manager Roberto Mancini, as fans and photographers watched on.

According to the Daily Mail, the row was triggered after a stray pass from Richards, with Balotelli believed to have reacted with a comment towards the defender, who then attempted to "launch himself" at the Italian.

Reports earlier this week suggested Balotelli was facing an internal investigation and possible disciplinary action after breaching City's late-night curfew ahead of the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.
