Romagnoli: “Gattuso deserves credit, he gave us the grit we were lacking”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli heaped praise upon coach Gennaro Gattuso after the Rossoneri’s dramatic penalty win over Lazio.

Both legs of the Coppa Italia semi-final ended 0-0, and Lazio fan Romagnoli scored the winning penalty as Milan triumphed 5-4 on penalties after eight rounds.

“It was a wonderful game, really hard-fought. We both had chances to break the deadlock, but we’re happy, we deserved it and want to continue like this,” the defender told Rai Sport.

“It’s important not to concede goals and the credit goes to everyone in the team. We’ve got to continue working like this and doing even better.”

Milan have now gone 13 games and unbeaten in all competitions and extended their streak of clean sheets to six games.

“The Coach deserves a lot of credit, as he gave us that intensity and grit we were lacking.”
