What is even going on at Milan right now.

During the press conference, Gennaro Gattuso had this to say about the match:

As for the game, I think the draw is right. We had to face this match differently and it went well too because Donnarumma’s great save in the 90’ avoided a certain defeat. We let Frosinone play their game for 45 minutes and we got scared after about 5-6 minutes of their long-balls. It was a poor first half. We had chances but we did not make the most of them. We have to be calm and avoid giving in to pressure, I have to make the team understand that mistakes can happen but that does not mean we become absent-minded.

“The draw is right?”

Gattuso has been the manager of Milan more than five minutes and played for the club. There isn’t a world where Milan drawing with Fosinone, even away from home, is okay.

The fact that Gigio Donnarumma has to bail out Milan is a sad commentarty on how this season is going, not a positive outcome from the match.

This is embarrassing.

On to the links.
