Gennaro Gattuso was his usually quotable self today in the pre-match press conference.

Gattuso acknowledged the task at hand in the second leg in London, and said:

We know it will be difficult, but we’re born ready. This is football and there is nothing more beautiful than to overturn the odds and make history. Tomorrow’s match will be different. We will give our all because it’s our dream, but we know we’ll have to play a perfect match. We are not a team that makes every opportunity count. We do well to arrive in the final third but we don’t always finish the right way. We are doing better but we still have to improve

Gattuso has rarely done much wrong so far as the boss at AC Milan. He knows how much it means to the fans and to the community to wear the shirt and what kind of response that is needed to have a famous victory against Arsenal.
