Gattuso: “I don’t like this”

By Anthony Torgrude -

AC Milan handily beat Hellas Verona 3-0 on Wednesday the 13th yet lost to that same team 3-0 today the 17th. A wild change from the previous outing and this is what Gattuso had to say about it.

“For 25 minute the team created a great deal, then paid for the first chance. I think the second goal created the real drama, as we lost our heads there.”

“We changed the marking between Ricardo Rodriguez and Davide Calabria, but until the opening goal, we played some good football. As often happens, we lost our way at the first sign of difficulty.”

Gennaro was quick to call it as he saw it without holding back, deeming the performance embarrassing.

“It was embarrassing, we have to look forward. It’d be easier to say that off the field issues were affecting us, but the players are receiving their wages on time, the club has made presence felt, there are no locker room issues.”

“We have to work out why we play well and look ready to score, but after the first hiccup we don’t react, or if we do react, it’s in a chaotic fashion with no organization. I don’t like this.”

  1. Sure thing. Keep playing kalinic and expect to score. Give youngsters a chance for crying out loud. Give Pocatello, Silva, crutone a chance not 5 mins of playing time. And someone please bring bonnuci to the ground. Arm band doesn’t suit him. Strip him of leadership role. He has been a big flop so far. He’ll do a lot better without all that responsibly. Also, 433 is the best formation by far.

  2. Like Kalinic is the problem. We barely get a decent ball to him. The biggest chance of the game foe Milan was Suso on a Kalinic assist. Suso should have scored. There’re many better strikers than Kalinic, but claiming that Cutrone and Silva ‘ll do the job is pure ignorance. They have had plenty of chances as well and fail to live up when needed. They only shine in Europa League against minor teams and in the Coppa where Verona was a different team. Even Milan’s critics seem to fail over and over again…

    1. Edelman I’m not suggesting that kalinic is the problem. He is part of the problem. His finish touch is very poor and doesn’t move as much as Silva and crutone do. One of the biggest problems is midfield my opinion, who fails to provide decent passes in the final 3rd. Also, cant emphasise this enough, we need A GOOD EXPERIENCED COACH. Let’s face it gattuso was never known for his brains. He may be a good assistant coach as he can motivate players. Umbrella was an average coach at best. Come on, their careers as coaches speak for themselves.

  3. Playing kalinic up front with suso and someone behaind him ,He did the same thing as montella did with the atack it is like he doesn’t see the problem or doesn’t know how to solve it . I am sure curtone and Silva in the atack will successed , I see 4222 as the best for us .my opinion is we they have to change the coach as fast as possible while we still can make things up in the European league although we don’t have many alternatives but I see brandelle as a good one if he accept it . And I am questioning marabille more than anything for his unrealistic view for the players he brought .

  4. Comment:why did Gattuso substitute Rodriguez and kept Borini and Montolivo that long on the pitch? Why cant Kessie be subtituted either though he keeps perfroming from bad to worse? Gattuso is another SUCKA of a coach. My day 1 club Milan is gradually making me lose my interest and love for football
