Mario Balotelli has decided to follow the example of his Manchester City team-mates and is now happy at Eastlands – that is the message coming from the club’s fitness coach Ivan Carminati.

The striker has been quoted as saying he finds little to do in Manchester and misses Milan, leading to talk that it is simply a cash of when and not if he will return to Italy.

Balotelli has also had his fair share of troubles on the pitch too and has come under fire for what has appeared to be a less than professional attitude.

But the former Inter man is turning over a new leaf according to Carminati.

"Mario is strong and skilled and sometimes he needs to be stimulated, but he has great qualities", Carminati told Radio Sportiva.

"Recently he has changed his attitude and now he is following the example of his team-mates.

"His intention is to remain, we have talked, he wants to respect his contract."
