Manchester City mix-up: BBC reporter confuses Roberto Mancini with Mario Balotelli
It is an easy mistake to make. A lot is made of the father-son relationship between Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli, which perhaps explains why Match of the Day reporter Damian Johnson got the two confused on Saturday.
Johnson thought he was talking to the ‘son’ when he was actually with the ‘dad’. Mancini was quick to correct him, but was also eager to press on with the interview rather than waste any time reveling in the reporter’s embarrassment.
