Soccer: Balotelli drops tribunal action against Man City

Rome, December 19 - Italy forward Mario Balotelli has dropped his appeal against Manchester City's decision to fine him two weeks' wages because of his disciplinary record last season. The 22-year-old was set to appeal at a Premier League tribunal on Wednesday to try to overturn the fine of 340,000 pounds or about 400,000 euros after he missed 11 games last term because of suspensions. A club statement said Balotelli had decided to drop the action "as a sign of respect for (coach) Roberto Mancini, the supporters and the club".
