Former World Cup winner Frank Leboeuf has labelled Milan forward Mario Balotelli as ‘unmanageable’ and ‘a kind of poison for the group’.
The striker is a leading figure on the pitch for the Rossoneri this term and for the Italian national team, but has not impressed the former Chelsea defender.
“Balotelli is unmanageable, he is a kind of poison for the group,” began Leboeuf to RMC Sport this week.
“On Wednesday I saw the match against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and the authority of Seedorf has been damaged.
“He almost did not want to come off after the shoulder injury, the Coach was forced to almost reprimand him.
“I find this attitude very annoying, even for the Italian national team - he has a great talent, but he is difficult to insert into a group.”
