Premier League - Balotelli: I'm unhappy

The controversial Italian striker continues to attract unwanted headlines but insists his relationship with his team-mates and manager Roberto Mancini is fine.

However the 20-year-old, speaking to Sky Sport Italia, is quoted by Corriere della Sera as saying he is unsettled in the north west, although he stopped short of saying he wanted to leave.

"I'm not happy in Manchester, I don't like the city," he said. "Everything's okay with the coach and my team-mates, but the city is not to my taste.

"Do I miss Milan? No, I miss my home, Brescia. I miss my family and friends. I can think of this experience as one of personal growth.

"Will I stay with City until the end of my contract? I don't know, I'm here now, but we'll see. AC Milan? It's a great club, maybe one day I'll consider it, maybe even Inter."
