Raiola alleges Materazzi physically assaulted his client...
Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola has accused Marco Materazzi of kicking the striker during a violent assault following Inter's 3-1 win over Barcelona in the Champions League.

Reports and reaction after the game suggested there was a heated argument inside the tunnel between the two men. But Raiola says it went further than that, with physical blows coming into play.

"Is it normal for your team-mate to start kicking you?" Raiola told Telelombardia.

"Mario was assaulted."

The alleged tunnel incident was related to Balotelli's gestures towards the San Siro crowd during the game. The striker was booed and heckled before he threw his shirt to the ground upon the final whistle.
