â€śWe were able to get back on track after conceding the opener, but then with Balotelliâ€™s dismissal we had to grit our teeth to the very end,â€ť mused Maicon.
â€śI donâ€™t know what happened, but Mario needs to understand he cannot keep making these mistakes. He still has a lot to learn and, hopefully, what happened here will help him grow.â€ť
Captain Javier Zanetti also had words of advice for Balotelli, who has become just as famous for his disciplinary problems as his football skills.
â€śWe got off to a bad start and had it all under control, but unfortunately in the second half Mario was sent off. We really couldâ€™ve done without that incident.â€ť
