The confrontation followed Friday's bust-up between Mario Balotelli and team-mate Jerome Boateng in training.

Balotelli, 20, reacted angrily to a tackle from behind by the 22-year-old Germany defender, who retaliated by grabbing the striker by the throat in front of Mancini and the rest of the squad.

The two players appeared to make up afterwards but Mancini had words with his £23million signing from Inter Milan as he tried to calm him down.

Mancini also had words with Tevez after a blazing row during half-time of the club's 2-1 win over Newcastle.

It is understood that the mood turned sour when Mancini entered the dressing room after his players and heard Tevez saying something he didn't like.

City's Italian manager then made a comment of his own and Tevez jumped up from his seat to confront him.

Words were exchanged and other members of the team and backroom staff had to intervene.
