Besides the results, the best part of Gennaro Gattuso as manager is how he talks to the media.

Gattuso told AC MilanTV:
I am pleased with the result, but I have to say I wasn’t so happy during the game. We could have lost a lot today. It was a tricky match and we needed a brave performance. I was worried about our passing because we were too slow. I knew we were going to struggle until the end. We did well when changing our system of play during the match and always believing in the comeback. Now it’s time to rest, we need it
Milan should feel lucky to not only have Gattuso as manager, as not only does he absolutely bleed black and red, he also speaks his truth, not matter what. And the results don’t lie: he’s a fantastic manager.
