Manchester City and Italy striker Mario
Balotelli needs surgery on a minor eye condition, first team
coach David Platt said on Saturday.
"Mario will have an operation in a few days," Platt told
City's website after the 3-1 home victory over
Queens Park Rangers in the English Premier League.
"It's not a major procedure and he should be back quite
quickly. I've heard suggestions he will be out for a month but
that's not true.
"Hopefully it will correct a problem he's been having for
some time and he can move on from there," added Platt.
Balotelli was an unused substitute for Saturday's match as
Rangers were sunk by goals from Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and
Bobby Zamora was on target for the visitors in the second
City are fourth in the league, two points behind leaders
Chelsea, with seven points from three matches.
