Gennaro Gattuso spoke at the press conference yesterday before tomorrow’s match against Torino.

In regards to facing Torino, Gattuso said:

In the last years, they have fought a lot. They are a tough team and know exactly what to do. Tomorrow we’ll need a great performance. Torino have a great sense of belonging and a lot of talent up front. When they are in possession, they play good football. They can score at any moment. Belotti knows well how to hurt you. When Torino play well they can trouble anyone.

Milan shouldn’t let the recent disappointing draws to Inter Milan and Napoli distract from the overall goal of Champions League qualification. As long as Milan plays well and picks up points the rest of the way, there is always a chance. Torino isn’t a team to be taken lightly, and staying motivated should allow this team to advance up the table.
