Why do some man city constantly stick up for ballotelli, the guy is a joke. All he does is cause problems. If this was a man utd player fergie would of got rid by now, as would of most clubs. If city have sense they will get rid and get this joker of their wage bill, trouble is tho who would buy him. He cost £24 million and is on £170,000 a week, if i was the manager regardless of the price tag i would rip up his contract and terminate it.
