Pay per head services found out that Massimiliano Allegri, Milan head coach, warned Mario Balotelli that he must improve after being benched for the 3-1 loss to Barca.
On Wednesday, Milan were down 2-0 after 40 minutes thanks to a Lionel Messi penalty and an effort by Sergio Busquets.
An own goal by Pique reduced the debt at half-time before a second for Messi wrapped up a very nice victory for Gerardo Martino’s players.
Price per head services saw that one point of discussion before the UEFA Champions League match was Allegri’s decision to bench Balotelli, with Robinho chosen in a more advanced position.
The Italy international missed the first meeting between both sides at San Siro due to a thigh injury, and many fans and pay per head services following his side were upset to see that he could not make a difference on Wednesday when he came off the bench.
And the coach defended the decision not to name the forward in his starting XI, insisting that Balotelli must learn to deal with the difficulties of regular first-team football.
“It’s simple I did it for Milan and Balotelli,” Allegri said. “Mario had that injury on international duty and his performances were not sharp, so I preferred to start with the pairing that played in the first leg.
“He did some good things in the second half. Of course, people expect a lot from him, he has to improve and get accustomed to playing every three days, which he has never really done before coming to Milan, he was a reserve at Inter and Manchester City.
“It’s tough both physically and psychologically. He did very well on a few occasions, while in others he delayed the pass a bit too long.”
