Milan Manager Gennaro Gattuso spoke to the Press ahead of his side’s huge match against Juventus tomorrow.
“We’ll be facing a great team and we can’t afford to make anymore mistakes if we want to qualify for the Champions League.
“Returning players? I’ve seen them with good legs and great desire to play this game. We needed this break? Kalinic? He trained well and I don’t have a problem with him.
“Bonucci back in Turin? He’s calm, it’s normal if he’s a bit emotional, but he’s a great professional”.
Milan Right-Back Andrea Conti suffered another knee injury in training this week and might have to undergo a second knee operation.
“We managed Conti well, but maybe I could’ve done better. I was wrong to make him feel so comfortable.
“We’ll know if he needs more surgery in a few days, but we must be close to him because he’s important to this club”.
Gattuso has great respect for Juventus Manager Massimiliano Allegri as the pair played together for Perugia in the 90’s but Allegri also Coached Gattuso between 2010-2012 as he was the Milan Manager.
“As a Coach, I have to thank him because he was right. We cleared the air, I apologised and we’ve had a great relationship for a while now.
“I envy him for his ability. When you study Juve, you don’t understand any of it. He’s changed a lot because he has great knowledge. He’s become a great Coach”.
Gattuso then spoke about his renewal but was annoyed by the question.
“My renewal will come, but I can’t talk about it anymore. Whether it’s in an Easter egg or not, it doesn’t matter, but please just let it pass, enough already”.
