Balotelli convinced City will beat United in derby
Controversial Milan striker Mario Balotelli is convinced his former side outplays Premier League leaders Manchester United in a cross-town derby.
The striker, who played for the Citizens before joining the Italian giants in January, believes that Roberto Mancini, with whom he shared a ‘tough love’ relationship, has what it takes to beat arch rivals in Manchester derby. Balotelli said: ‘I am sure Roberto Mancini will find the right way to win the derby. I really hope City win.”
The Italian revealed scoring against United was a special moment in his career: ‘The goal I scored at Old Trafford was a great moment in my career, like the goal I scored for Italy against Germany in the Euros. As soon as I arrived at City, everyone talked to me about the derby as the game to win and the Old Trafford as the stadium to conquer… I understood that - and did it! I am sure me and Nigel (de Jong) will watch the game - perhaps not together - but we will both supporting our ex-teammates, the boss and the supporters big time: we want a win.”
