Mauro Tassotti, Milan’s assistant coach, spoke about Mario Balotelli’s sending off against Napoli on Sunday night. Balotelli and Luca Banti, the referee, exchanged words after the final whistle, resulting in Balotelli receiving a second yellow card and, consequently, a three match suspension, a ban which will see him miss the Rossoneri’s match again Juventus.
Tassotti told Milan Channel, “Maybe Mario was wrong. I don’t know what he said, but the referees were clear in their meeting – the players needs to be more educated when addressing them”.
In regards to the game, Tassotti said “Conceding two goals per game, which is happening at the moment, is a bad habit, one which we must curb. Ironically, we conceded goals in much less dangerous situations. We have to be more careful”.
The assistant manager went on to speak about the Bologna game saying, “Saponara’s condition is getting better. We have to be careful with him because he’s already relapsed, however, I believe his moment has arrived”.
Milan travel to Bologna tonight off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Napoli.
