AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf defended Mario Balotelli after he broke down during defeat to Napoli. Balotelli started crying on the bench after his substitution during Milan's 3-1 defeat to Napoli. He had just missed a great scoring opportunity at the Stadio San Paolo.

"What can I say about Balotelli's tears? They were the tears of a sportsman," said Coach Seedorf in a Press conference.

In an interview with Mediaset Premium, Seedorf also noted "Mario is human. These are things that happen many times in football and sport in general. I'd say it was actually beautiful, but I'd prefer to talk about the game."

The tactician had also told Sky Sport Italia "we are players and there are times when we express ourselves that way. I see nothing wrong or abnormal in that. I experienced it at times too."
