There have been some reports outside Italy that he was crying because of racist abuse from the Napoli fans, but there appears to be no evidence of this.
“What can I say about Balotelli’s tears? They were the tears of a sportsman,” said Coach Seedorf in a Press conference.
In an interview with Mediaset Premium Seedorf also noted “Mario is human. These are things that happen many times in football and sport in general. I’d say it was actually beautiful, but I’d prefer to talk about the game.”
The tactician had also told Sky Sport Italia “we are players and there are times when we express ourselves that way. I see nothing wrong or abnormal in that. I experienced it at times too.”
Teammate Ignazio Abate suggested the tears were not of anger, but of disappointment. “Mario really cares about doing well with Milan and making his mark. He is sentimental. It’s a shame that he got so downhearted about it, as he needs to keep his head up.”
He wasn’t crying because of racist chants, my bad. Sorry people, rumors only. Reblog this again please.
