Mario Balotelli feels 'persecuted', says agent Mino Raiola

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola says the player feels "a little bit persecuted" after being given a four-match ban after clashing with Scott Parker in Sunday's game with Spurs.

Raiola says Balotelli is "very disappointed and a little bit angry" about the decision to ban him and says it is "very odd" that referee Howard Webb says he did not see the incident.

Raiola also confirms that Harry Redknapp once attempted to sign Balotelli for Tottenham.
