MARIO BALOTELLI flew off the handle after his red card in Sunday's 1-1 draw at Liverpool. Manchester City's hothead striker banged the visitors' dressing room door so hard the handle broke.
Balotelli then charged off to find a TV monitor to see the clash with Martin Skrtel that led to referee Martin Atkinson showing him a second yellow card.
Team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov went to calm him down and took the City star back to the dressing room, while the handle was easily replaced without apparent need for repair.
Balotelli and boss Roberto Mancini clearly felt the reaction of Skrtel and the Liverpool players led to him being sent off.
And the striker, 21, will not face any internal disciplinary action despite the third red card of his City career.
Balotelli has been involved in a string of controversy since his £21million move from Inter Milan 15 months ago.
He has had training ground bust-ups and once threw darts at some youth team players at City's Carrington base.
More recently, he and some pals accidentally set his house alight after a firework prank.
