Mancini angered by Balotelli display

22 Mar 2012, 22 maret 2012, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has revealed his decision to haul off striker Mario Balotelli against Chelsea was a tactical one.

Mancini pleased with Tevez
Balotelli was substituted at half-time with the score at 0-0, having wasted a glorious chance to break the deadlock in the opening period when an error from Frank Lampard sent him clean through on Petr Cech. The Italian took his shot too early, and Cech was able to palm it round the post.
That miss was the low point in a lethargic showing from the notoriously unpredictable Balotelli, and Mancini said: "I didn't like how he played, so I made a tactical sub."
City fell behind in the second period after Gary Cahill's deflected strike, but recovered to win 2-1 following a penalty from Sergio Aguero and a winner from Samir Nasri, who scored after running onto a pass from returning striker Carlos Tevez.
Mancini's side are now one point behind rivals and league leaders Manchester United; the two teams are scheduled to face each other at the Etihad before the end of the season.
