Alessio Romagnoli of Milan praised his manager Gennaro Gattuso as the Rossoneri reached the Coppa Italia Final.
Both semi-final games between Milan and Lazio ended in 0-0 draws, so the second leg at Lazio’s Stadio Olimpico went to extra-time and eventually penalties. The penalty shoot-out was entertaining as it went to sudden death, but wound up in favour of Milan who won 5-4 thanks to Alessio Romagnoli’s winning penalty.
Romagnoli, a self-confessed Lazio fan, spoke to Rai Sport after the game and spoke about the performance.
“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, 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 haven’t conceded a single goal in the Coppa Italia this season and in their impressive 13 match unbeaten run in all competitions, they have kept 9 clean sheets. Romagnoli praised boss Gennaro Gattuso for the work he has done since taking over from Vincenzo Montella in November.
“The Coach deserves a lot of credit, as he gave us that intensity and grit we were lacking.”
