London – Manchester City’s Italian striker, Mario Balotelli, is to appeal this week to the English Premier League against a club fine imposed for on-field ill-discipline, according to reports.

The 22-year-old failed to overturn the sanction internally and would now take the case to a league tribunal, Britain’s domestic Press Association news agency said, without quoting sources.

Balotelli was banned for a total of eight matches last season and missed 11 games through suspension, as a European sanction was carried over from the 2010/11 campaign.

The forward was instrumental in helping Italy to the final of this year’s European championships in Poland and Ukraine, scoring twice in the 2-1 semi-final victory over Germany.

But Balotelli has shown erratic club form and was substituted during defending champions City’s recent derby with Manchester United, which they lost 3-2.
