Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards bust-up sparked by a misplaced pass
Mario hates poor passing
The training ground scrap between Manchester City team-mates Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards was started by a stray pass from the England international, Mirror Football reports.
Balotelli was unhappy at the accuracy of Richards’ passing and told him: “If you won’t pass to my feet, I won’t move.”
An unimpressed Richards advised his pal to grow up, before Balotelli began a sweary rant in Italian. Richards presumably didn’t know what was being said but decided that he wouldn’t like what he was hearing if he did understand, and launched himself at the striker.
As we reported yesterday, the pair shook hands afterwards and Richards went on Twitter to insist they had resolved their differences.
