Consistency the key for Milan says Gattuso
AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has urged his players to build on the 3-0 win over Cagliari as they moved back into the top four.
Milan had slipped to seventh in the Serie A standings as Atalanta, Roma and Lazio had all picked up wins, but Milan responded in fine fashion to jump back above their rivals.
Gattuso was delighted with the win, but says they need to be more consistent during the remainder of the season. ‘We did well, played good football and could have scored more goals,’ he said to Sky Sport Italia.
‘I didn’t like the attitude of the midfielders in the first half, we weren’t taking enough control. ‘I’ve liked our performances for a while and said we needed to get both phases right – attacking and defending. We were lucky today.
‘Now it’s about hunger, the desire to work together as a unit. I don’t want to hear ‘I’ from anyone: it’s about ‘us’.
‘For many years we have reached the spring and Milan have been outside the race for the Champions League, but we need to break that trend and fight hard to be in a strong position in the final weeks [of the season].’
