Video: Mario Balotelli cries on sub's bench as Milan lose to Napoli

Posted by Chris Wright

Having gone ahead through Adel Taarabt's eighth-minute debut goal, AC Milan went on to lose 3-1 against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday night and, having been hauled off in the 73rd minute with the Rossoneri already two goals down, it all got too much for Mario Balotelli, with the striker seen in floods of tears as he took his place on the bench...



It was erroneously reported at the time that Balotelli had been upset by racist taunting from the Napoli fans and was subbed off in distress, but, as Football Italia are keen to clear up, those early rumours were unsubstantiated and more or less complete tosh.

Indeed, it would appear that Mario was merely beside himself as he watched his beloved Milan falter to yet another disappointing Serie A defeat.
