Mario Balotelli has spoken out over the row he was embroiled in after last season’s FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester United and vows that the spat with Rio Ferdinand is over for good.
Balotelli said: ‘For me, what happened on the pitch stayed on the pitch and now we are friends like before. Or we respect each other anyway. I’m going to give him (Ferdinand) the handshake before the game like I give to everyone. All that matters is the result. I think it will be a lot of fun.’
