Balotelli facing layoff with knee injury

09 September 2010

That knee injury Mario Balotelli picked up at the end of the first leg of City’s Europa League qualifier has turned out to be much more significant than originally thought. As a result, Balotelli has had surgery back in his native Italy to repair damaged cartilage and looks set to miss a minimum of a month.

For all those decrying all the players City have bought, this is exactly why you need depth in your squad to compete at the top of the Premier League. It’s disappointing that Roberto Mancini will be without a player who looked so impressive in his brief debut, but between James Milner and David Silva, there are plenty of options at Mancini’s disposal to play on the left.
