David Beckham was benched for the second game in a row, as AC Milan beat Chievo 1-0.
Ancelotti, who was sent to the stands before half-time for arguing with the referee, claimed last night that Beckham was suffering from a shoulder injury.
"There is nothing special he has to do to get back into the team because he has always trained hard and he has no great problem," said Ancelotti.
"He has been hindered by an injury to his right shoulder which has set him back a little for the last two games."
Ancelotti sent out veteran Clarence Seedorf instead of Beckham and the Dutchman scored the only goal.
There appeared to be nothing wrong with Beckham as he warmed up during the second half, plus David never mentioned the injury in his blog this week.
Like many of you have said, this seems like a classic case of David being used by a club to elevate their status. Now there is no chance of AC Milan winning Serie A, the manager seems to have forgotten all about David.
