MARIO BALOTELLI'S INTER RETURN
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli underlined his reputation for the unpredictable as he turned up at an Inter Milan press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
The Italian made an unexpected appearance as Inter formally unveiled their new manager Andrea Stramaccioni.
Balotelli knows Stramaccioni, who has been promoted from youth team coach, from his time at the Serie A giants and paid a visit to congratulate him on his appointment and see old friends.
To much amusement, Balotelli walked into the room as Stramaccioni addressed media and shook his hand and those of other people at the top table before leaving.
Balotelli, 21, and the rest of the City squad have been given a couple of days off by manager Roberto Mancini but are due back at training on Wednesday.
