Milan’s Mario Balotelli and Alex missed training today, as both are suffering with illness.
It had been suggested that Balotelli could be in contention to make his return in the Coppa Italia game with Sampdoria, but the striker sat out today’s session at Milanello.
Both he and central-defender Alex are suffering with “flu-like symptoms” and were able to play no part.
It has been suggested that Rossoneri Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic must win the next two games, against Sampdoria and Udinese in order to save his job.
Club President Silvio Berlusconi has admitted to being “disappointed” in the Serbian Coach, and accused the team of lacking chemistry.
