Have you ever experienced a morning after losing something? Well for Milanisti its becoming quite a cliche these days. Benevento, sitting at the bottom of the table, have won the first point in Serie A, yeah first point in their history, against an underperforming Milan side.

Gattuso’s comments in the after match presser was the reflection of our recent years. “There is great despair in the locker room, it would’ve been better to get stabbed than concede this goal.”

Gattuso has announced the squad for the Match day 6 of UEL’s 17/18 group stage against HNK Rijeka. Milan have already qualified for the next round but it would be nice to see how Gattuso and Co. recover from the, what felt like a defeat, draw. Star men are left behind including Donnarumma and the best Milan player over the weekend Bonaventura alongside Kalinić and Suso.
