After last night’s draw against QPR, Roberto Mancini confirmed that Mario Balotelli’s departure to AC Milan is imminent. Mancini expressed regret that Mario is leaving and wished him well for the future. A seemingly emotional Mancini said:
I’m very sorry for Mario because I love Mario like a guy, like a player but I think for him this is a good opportunity to come back to Italy and play for another top club. I hope that Mario can score one goal every game because if he works hard he can do this.
