Gennato Gattuso spoke after the match about a few things, including that he was happy with the performance of the team. He was also happy about how the team was dealing with the injury crisis at the team.

Gattuso told Milan TV:

We still lack that spark, it was evident in Romagnoli’s goal. We got lucky, in Serie A it is rare to see five passes in front of the post. When you create chances you have to finalize them. I want more flair from Castillejo even though today he was phenomenal. I will gladly keep today’s performance. I am happy with how the team is holding up, I am happy with how the goal was created: a team that is not physically fit can not pull this off. Some of our boys are out due to injury and we need everyone to put in an extra effort.

And now, Milan is also dealing with a potential loss of Gonzalo Higuain. So, yeah, great.
