Football: Late Balotelli penalty gives Seedorf winning Milan start
(REUTERS) - Clarence Seedorf made a winning start as AC Milan coach thanks to a late Mario Balotelli penalty which gave his side a 1-0 victory over Hellas Verona on Sunday.
Despite the win, it was another unconvincing performance from Milan who struggled to create chances and always looked vulnerable in defence.
Balotelli side-footed home in the 82nd minute after Verona defender Alejandro Gonzalez had needlessly fouled Kaka, tripping the Brazilian with a clumsy tackle even though the ball was already heading out of play.
Milan remained 11th with 25 points after only their sixth league win in 20 attempts this season.
