GATTUSO: "THERE WAS NO REACTION FROM US"
The boss to Milan TV: "We take all the responsibility, I am the first one to do it"
After the 3-0 defeat against Hellas Verona at the Bentegodi Stadium, Rino Gattuso analysed the game and the performance of his players. This is what he said to Milan TV:
"We have to improve because we did not react after being down in the score. We created many opportunities before conceding the first goal, but we dropped the intensity after facing the first obstacle. We continued to play but the second goal knocked us down. If you check the stats, we recorded 30 attempts, but it’s not enough, we have to play as a team.
"We cannot look for consolations. We have to remain focused until the end. The team cannot drop the intensity like this when facing an obstacle; we have to improve in our concentration and when pressing our opponents. Hellas Verona took the lead because we made a mistake in marking. We knew they would play defensively and try the counter attacks. We were not good enough in the transition phase too. We take all the responsibility, I am the first one to do it.
WORK ON THE PSYCHOLOGICAL
"Why did I replace Rodriguez with Cutrone? It was a technical decision, there weren’t any physical issues but we were down in the score and I wanted to play more offensively. It’s time to work on the psychological aspect because losing 3-0 hurts. Hellas Verona played a good match, but the full-time score doesn't do us justice".
