London, Nov.29 (ANI): Manchester City's star striker Mario Balotelli flew off the handle after receiving a red card in Sunday's 1-1 draw at Liverpool.
The hotheaded striker banged the visitors' dressing room door so hard that the handle broke. Balotelli then charged off to find a TV monitor to see the clash with Martin Skrtel that led to referee Martin Atkinson showing him a second yellow card, The Sun reports.
Teammate Aleksandar Kolarov went to calm him down and took the City star back to the dressing room, while the handle was easily replaced without apparent need for repair.
Balotelli and boss Roberto Mancini clearly felt the reaction of Skrtel and the Liverpool players led to him being sent off.
The striker, 21, will not face any internal disciplinary action despite the third red card of his City career. (ANI)
