Following the promotion of former Primavera manager Gennaro Gattuso to the top job, 19-year-old striker Patrick Cutrone spoke highly of the new Milan boss.
In an interview with Premium Sport, Cutrone was asked about the new manager, saying: “Gattuso is a coach that wants the team to act like a group, this is very important for him as well as complete commitment.”
On Gattuso’s compliments towards him, he said: “I am very pleased to hear his words about me, I will continue to give my all to help the team”
When asked about Sunday’s game against Benevento, he reiterated the sentiments of his manager and teammates.
“It will be a very important match, we need to all help each other. We are looking at the match against Benevento as if it were a final. In their last matches we have seen their will to win points and we will see the same hunger in them when they’re playing us.”
He was asked about the struggles of fellow striker Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva where he offered his support saying that: “Kalinic was very unlucky against Torino but we all know how good he is just like we know how great Andre Silva is. We are all working hard to score more goals.”
