London: Manchester City's wayward striker Mario Balotelli has accepted a two-week fine over his poor disciplinary record and dropped an appeal to a Premier League tribunal, the club announced on Wednesday.

Lawyers representing the Italy international had been due to present an appeal on his behalf to a tribunal on Wednesday, after City reportedly fined him two weeks' wages for his on-pitch misdemeanours last season.

However, following talks between Balotelli and the club, the 22-year-old agreed to withdraw his case and accept his punishment.
