AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has acknowledged that his team were not at their best during the recent 0-0 draw against Lazio in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final. The Rossoneri had the chance to gain an away-goal advantage from the game but they could not find the cutting edge in the attack front with just one shot on target.
AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has spoken about the tactical awareness of winter signing Krzysztof Piatek. The Poland international has been a revelation for the Rossoneri since joining from Genoa last month and he has already contributed four goals in many league starts for the San Siro outfit.
Former AC Milan star Andrea Pirlo has said that he is not entirely convinced with the abilities of Lucas Paqueta. The Brazilian joined the Rossoneri from Flamengo during the winter transfer window and he has since impressed with his skill, flair and confidence on the playing field for the Milan giants.
Former Liverpool star John Toshack has urged Aaron Ramsey to take up the opportunity of joining Juventus when his Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season. The Wales international has already been declined a new deal with the Gunners and he is currently free to discuss pre-contract terms with an overseas club.
Brazil international Alex Sandro has ended the ongoing speculation regarding his future by penning a new long-term deal with Italian champions Juventus. The left-sided defender previously had only 18 months remaining on his contract and it had been suggested that he could fancy a potential move to the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp reckons that Liverpool – Manchester United is the kind of match for which no hype is necessary because the match already carries a lot of importance. Technically it’s just another Premiership match for the two teams, but if anyone from the two camps says that they don’t have that little bit of extra excitement about this game in comparison to other Premiership games, then that will be lying, because this match matters a LOT for people from both camps.
According to Klopp, while it’s a huge match, Liverpool won’t be doing anything different to what they have been doing in the Premiership so far – the process needs to remain the same. But the mindset has to be positive. Because when you put in your efforts thinking positively, more often than not you end up fetching the positive results.
