Mihajlovic blasts Balotelli

Sinisa Mihajlovic blasted Mario Balotelli after a final whistle row, though Milan emerged with a 2-1 win over Genoa.

The Rossoneri had been leading 2-0 through Carlos Bacca and Keisuke Honda, but Alessio Cerci scored on the rebound at the 92nd minute and Genoa threatened to equalise from a last-gasp corner.

The Coach was visibly furious at the final whistle and tried to run on to the pitch after Balotelli, a late substitute, who hadn’t been doing any defensive work.

“We had to win and we did it. It was a good performance and we hardly ever ran risks,” Mihajlovic told Mediaset Premium.

“We should’ve scored a third goal and not risked at the end. It is also my fault, as those who don’t sacrifice themselves for the team to the 94th minute will no longer set foot on the field.

“It wasn’t just Balotelli, there were another two or three as well as him, they know who I’m talking about.

“Where can we improve? There are many areas, as when Balotelli and Jeremy Menez are fit we will have more attacking options and it’ll be more difficult for the opposition to close us down.

“Riccardo Montolivo brings balance and Keisuke Honda did really well. They were jeered in the past by fans, but with grit and determination won everyone over.

“We are in the running for the Champions League play-off and putting pressure on the others.”
