Milan legend turn Manager, Gennaro Gattuso has insisted that his side is gradually becoming the team he wants them to be after their hardly-fought 1:1 draw at Fiorentina in the league on Saturday.
Gattuso, who played in a Milan side with intense grit and composure explained that he was glad to see his side avoid defeat after going behind for the first time in the league this season. He was appointed in November to replace underperforming Manager, Vincenzo Montella after a busy summer in which Milan brought in 11 new players.
Gattuso is only getting involved in football management for the first time and in his words, “We are certainly not pretty to watch yet but at least we are starting to do things as a team the way I want it,”
“The first half was not good enough but we were far better after halftime,” said Gattuso who is bringing the touchline passion and restlessness of Conte back to Serie A. “It wasn’t great but at least we got a point.”
“Some players weren’t at their best but we played the match the way we had to. We ran very few risks and for the first time, we did well by reacting and equalizing.”
