AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso issued a defiant response to speculation he will be sacked following the 2-0 win over Frosinone.

The Rossoneri ensured they signed off their final home game in the right way, scoring twice in the second half to earn a hard-fought win.

Krzysztof Piatek scored the first just before the hour mark with a close range flick, while Suso doubled the advantage with a wonderful free-kick.

The result means that Champions League hopes were kept alive for the time being at least, with hopes now resting on Juventus beating Atalanta.

“It was a difficult game, we knew it would be and that Frosinone would come here with the right attitude,” Gattuso told Sky Italia.

“We had a scare, we thank Gianluigi Donnarumma for getting us out of trouble and can look to the next game.

“In my view, there has been a lot of chatter and I’ve been considered on the way out since pre-season. The table talks, look over the last six years at how many points Milan earned and look where we are now.

“I think we did what we had to do. Perhaps we fell away during the period where we had to finish the job and it dragged on longer than expected. We reached the Coppa Italia semi-final, went out in the first round of the Europa League.

“Those who need to judge me will judge me. I’ll continue to work, I hope to do it at Milan, but either way I think I’m pretty decent and can keep learning.”
