Seedorf won't punish Balotelli

Milan boss Clarence Seedorf has said he won’t punish Mario Balotelli for posting a picture of himself playing table tennis.

The striker missed Italy’s game with Spain in midweek after suffering with a shoulder injury.

However, the controversial forward took to Twitter on March 5, posing with a racket.

The Coach though, has claimed that no action will be taken against the former Manchester City man.

“I’m not here to tell people how to use their own means of communication,” he told a Press conference.

“For you [journalists] this is news – that is a sad thing. What makes for news in Italy is a worry to me.

“This is such a trivial thing. Who cares if he played table tennis? He had a six-hour treatment.

“Ban players using Twitter? Unless there is a legal issue, I don’t think you can do that. I’m not here to discuss Balo’s behaviour.

“He’s done his recovery and is available.”
