AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted the lead up to their 1-1 draw with BATE Borisov was affected by Antonio Cassano's condition.

The psychological situation within the squad was difficult, as Cassano is still in the neurological wing of a hospital with a mystery illness, rumoured to be a mini-stroke.

“It’s only normal that there is a little apprehension within the group when things like this happen. The lads wanted to win in order to dedicate the success to Antonio,” said Allegri.
