After AC Milan’s 1-1 draw to Manchester United, the manager Genarro Gattuso spoke to the media about his side’s performance.
On Milan’s performance: “The workload was important. I wasn’t expecting this much, so I’m happy with the performance. I liked the mentality of our youngsters, we started to play often from the back. I’m very satisfied.”
About what he didn’t like: “I liked almost everything. Man Utd were missing several important players, but we are young, we have to continue like this. Certainly, we had an advantage by the absence of some Man Utd players.”
On Scaroni’s call: “This story makes me laugh. I’m calm, I’m happy with the president’s call, but I find the tranquillity in my daily work.”
On Reina: “He has great experience. It can give us a lot both on and off the field. Gigio also did well today. We have lots of games, now let’s see if we will continue like this or not.”
On Musacchio: “I have great confidence in him. Even last year I often choose his name, he deserved to play more. He is a player I will rely on a lot. He will be important for us.”
On Leonardo: “I had him as a teammate, as a coach and as a manager. There is great respect for him. We had some problems in the past, but we clarified this years ago. At this moment, our priority is not our relationship, but to bring Milan back up.”
On Suso: “It’s been a few days with him that we’re trying to do something new; attacking depth. He did well to listen to me and my staff. He can do well even without the ball.”
