AC Milan No2 Tassotti admits Balotelli axed over training form

AC Milan No2 Mauro Tassotti admits Mario Balotelli was dropped yesterday for poor training form.

Giampaolo Pazzini started the 1-1 draw with Lazio rather than Balotelli, who did come on during the second half.

"It was a decision made during the week," Tassotti told Sky Sport Italia.

"The Coach watches the training sessions and decides who to put into the starting XI. He chose Pazzini."
