Italy's team manager Gabriele Oriali has said "it's best if we talk about [Mario Balotelli] as little as possible, for everybody's sake," after the Nice striker was overlooked for a two-day training camp with the Squadra Azzurra this week.

Twenty two fringe players -- mainly consisting of youngsters -- were selected by Italy coach Giampiero Ventura for a get-together in Coverciano less than a month before he picks his next squad for a World Cup qualifier with Albania and international friendly against...

Dante has defended Mario Balotelli and said he was "surprised" by his Nice teammate's red card in the victory at Lorient on Saturday.

Balotelli was sent off for a third time in just 14 league appearances for Nice 68 minutes into his club's 1-0 win in Brittany.

Match referee Tony Chapron said Balotelli had aimed a "classic" English insult at him during the game, prompting the official to dismiss him.

The Italy international was also sent off in his club's game at Bordeaux just before Christmas and...

Mario Balotelli was sent off during Nice's 1-0 win away at Lorient for insulting the referee in English, match official Tony Chapron has claimed.

"He insulted me in English," Chapron is reported as saying postmatch. "I won't say more but it was something classical."

Meanwhile, Nice coach Lucien Favre opted against criticising Balotelli's actions, but did...

Mario Balotelli sent off but Nice still win to move second in Ligue 1

Mario Balotelli got his third red card for Nice, for what seems to be dissent after the ref ignored his claims for a foul.

Mario Balotelli was sent off for the third time this season in Ligue 1 as Nice leapfrogged Paris Saint-Germain into second place in the table after a 1-0 win at bottom club Lorient.

Balotelli, a free signing from Liverpool last summer, was shown a straight red card for dissent in the 68th minute.

From initial video replays, it seemed difficult to ascertain what Balotelli did wrong other than backing into Lorient defender Zargo Toure with his arms up as they challenged for a ball.

Nice defender Dante talks about Nice's form, Mario Balotelli, Lucien Favre and his talented young teammate, Malang Sarr.

Mario Balotelli has responded positively to the "kick up the backside" of being benched, Nice teammate Yoan Cardinale has told media.

Balotelli made a strong start to life in France following his summer move from Liverpool, scoring six goals in his opening five Ligue 1 matches to help his new club top Ligue 1.

Nice's title challenge has faded as Balotelli's form has dipped with just three goals coming from his next eight league games, leading to coach Lucien Favre naming him among the substitutes...
