Gattuso: “Top four is the first step, now we have to stay there”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso insisted his side still have work to do despite moving into the top four with a 2-1 win over Genoa.

Alessio Romagnoli’s late winner more than offset his second-half goal that had allowed Genoa to level following Suso’s early opener.

Milan moved above Lazio and into the top four with the win ahead of Sunday’s trip to Udinese.

“After taking the lead we could do many things much better,” Gattuso told Sky.

“We tried only yesterday this new solution [3-5-2] to have the numerical superiority in the middle of the field. We have made several mistakes. But all in all the team did well. We could do much better.”

On moving into the top four: “It’s the first step. Now we have to stay there. For everything we have gone through it is something very important. We have to continue like this, we have not achieved anything yet.”

Gattuso also discussed speculation surrounding his future, insisting he does not listen to rumours.

“I blow the whistle and I train. The voices do not touch me. My choices people may like or dislike, but I think about building something important. I do not feel comfortable, especially looking at the rankings. The team has some flaws.”

On the absence of Biglia: “I think that Bakayoko did not make us miss the Argentine. He did the right things. In the beginning maybe he was playing with fear. 

“Biglia had a relapse on an old scar. When you talk about calf injuries, we know he will be out for quite some time.”

Reports from Sky claim that Biglia left San Siro on crutches anf will undergo medical tests on Friday.
