Balotelli was on target, but Livorno felt he had pushed his marker to get the necessary space.
Seedorf said: "You can stir up controversy if you want, there's no point saying if it was a foul or not. I want to talk only about the good performance.
"Balotelli is maturing psychologically and this allows him to do better both on and off the field. I hope he continues along this path."
