The Italian made an unexpected appearance as Inter formally unveiled their new manager Andrea Stramaccioni.

Balotelli knows Stramaccioni, who has been promoted from youth team coach, from his time at the Serie A giants and paid a visit to congratulate him on his appointment and see old friends.

Having made a typically understated arrival in a Ferrari, to much amusement Balotelli walked into the room as Stramaccioni addressed media and shook his hand and those of other people at the top table before leaving.

Balotelli, 21, and the rest of the City squad have been given a couple of days off by manager Roberto Mancini but are due back at training on Wednesday.
