Football manager Mancini gambles with Balotelli
3rd March 2011 - Alma Shera
Manchester City football manager Roberto Mancini admits that he took a risk by using Mario Balotelli as a lone striker against Aston Villa.
However, the gamble paid off as the Italian scored an excellent goal in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup fifth round.
Football manager Mancini said he was very pleased with Balotelli's overall performance, after he left Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko out of the side.
He explained: "I took a risk to play only Mario up front. But Mario played well and scored a fantastic goal.
"I was very pleased with the overall performance. This game was very important for us."
Meanwhile, Aston Villa football manager Gerard Houllier defended his decision to leave out some key players, risking the wrath of Villa fans by saying that his side could not have beaten City.
The victory for the Eastlands outfit sets up a quarter final tie with Reading, who beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park on Tuesday (March 1st).
