Balotelli fined 120k pounds for visiting strip club before match day

London, Thu, 08 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 8 (ANI): Mario Balotelli has been fined a week's salary for his late-night visit to a strip club in Liverpool.


The Manchester City striker accepted the penalty, which is believed to be around 120,000 pounds, after being pictured outside the strip club in the early hours of Friday morning, contravening club regulations ahead of Saturday's game against Bolton.


Balotelli, 21, went on to play and score in the Premier League leaders' 2-0 defeat of the Trotters at the Etihad Stadium but City manager Roberto Mancini expressed his disappointment and pledged to investigate.


"I spoke with Mario and gave him a fine of one week's wages for what he did," the Sun quoted Mancini as saying.


"This is normal because every player should have good behaviour before the game," he said.


When asked if Balotelli had accepted the fine, Mancini said: "Yes."


It is the second time Balotelli has broken a curfew this season, among a host of other high-profile misdemeanours, but he admitted in an interview that he had made a mistake. (ANI)
