AC Milan coach Allegri explains holding back Balotelli

AC Milan coach Max Allegri explained holding back Mario Balotelli for their friendly defeat to Chelsea in the US.

Balotelli was given 45 minutes as a precautionary measure by Allegri.

"Mario took a knock in training so I preferred to only give him a half of football. Nevertheless, he did well out there."

Milan will play Los Angeles Galaxy in Miami on August 7.
