35728 - Mancini unaware of reported Balotelli bust-up

Roberto Mancini claimed he had no knowledge of a reported half-time altercation between Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli during Manchester City's 1-0 defeat to Swansea on Sunday.

Mancini was also extremely vague on the injury problem that forced Gareth Barry off the field prior to half-time. The City boss only revealed that Barry had been nursing the injury for a few weeks, but the Italian was unclear as to the cause of the issue.

"Gareth has a problem, I don't know what, but for three weeks. Not a big injury, a small problem," said Mancini, who had nothing to offer on the alleged disagreement between Toure and Balotelli.
