Manchester City Says Balotelli Accepts Club Fine, Drops Appeal

English Premier League champion Manchester City said Italy striker Mario Balotelli accepted a two-week club fine and dropped an appeal against the punishment.

His lawyers were scheduled to put his case before a league tribunal today. City, managed by Roberto Mancini, imposed the fine of 340,000 pounds ($554,000) because of the player’s indiscipline on the field last season, the Daily Mail reported. The 22-year-old missed 11 competitive games during the campaign through suspension after red cards.

“After amicable talks between the parties, as a sign of respect for Roberto Mancini, the supporters and the club, Mario Balotelli has chosen to accept a two-week fine levied upon him by the club and withdraw his disciplinary appeal,” City said in a statement. “Mario remains available for selection for all forthcoming fixtures.”
