Gattuso: “Second half was much better, Calhanoglu is bitter”

By MaaxiAngelo -

Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso spoke with Italian TV broadcasting company RAI after the Rossoneri’s 0-0 draw against Lazio in the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Wednesday evening. Here’s what he had to say:

“Bad first half, much better in the second half. Calhanoglu was bitter.”

On the game: “First half we played very slow rhythm, we could not dribble. It was better in the second half, we are happy, Lazio is a great team that is difficult to face and beat.”

On the importance of not conceding a goal: “It was important because a goal scored away from home is twice as important, we did well in the first half, recovered well. Gigio made a miracle happen, but we could also have had scored a goal from Calhanoglu. Now we’re focused on the league, then we’ll prepare for the return.”

Milan with two strikers: “With two strikers you create more concern for the opponent, we started the second well with the external attackers, and in the last twenty-five minutes, with two strikers, we created more concerns for Lazio.”

On Calhanoglu’s chance: “We were lucky too, Gigio made a miracle happen against Immobile, this is how football is, the mistakes are there, Hakan was very bitter and sad, he is looking for the goal in every way.”
