Mario Balotelli hits Andrea Poli from behind in AC Milan training [video]

We are unsure of the context of this clip, but it comes from AC Milan training on Thursday.

Quite why Balotelli decided to hit Andrea Poli from behind is unclear and there is little about this in the Italian press on Friday – perhaps Super Mario training spats have to be a lot crazier than this to command headlines?

Balotelli had an underwhelming game against PSV in midweek and will be hoping for improvement in AC Milan’s opener against Verona on Saturday evening.

Andrea Poli certainly didn’t seem too chuffed!
