Gennaro Gattuso speaks after goalless draw against Lazio

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.

Speaking after the match, Gattuso admitted that the Rossoneri were basically average when compared to recent matches with Lazio better organised during the course of the game. He added that his team should have tried out different channels rather than going centrally where Tiemoue Bakayoko could not influence the play.

Gennaro Gattuso speaks on Krzysztof Piatek after Empoli win

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.

Speaking in a press conference, Gattuso admitted that he has been impressed with the workrate shown by the Pole. He added that the marksman likes to analyse the movement of opposition defenders before the game and that has partly contributed to the success, he said: “Piatek has settled in very well and works hard, but he’s not a player who stands out in training. He looks after himself but doesn’t do that much. He is far more practical, focuses on the important things and likes to test out the movements two or three days before a game.”
