Gennaro Gattuso and a few of the players spoke with the media after today’s match against Inter Milan.

Gattuso said:

We fought hard to win this point, we actually risked to concede many times. Inter deserved a bit more, they really made us struggle. On the other hand, we missed too many passes. I’m happy about the point though. We will still fight for a Champions League qualifying spot until there is hope. We need to recover our energy and understand why we were so inaccurate in the last twenty minutes.

So while everyone would have wanted a win in this match, it wasn’t to be. But, a point is still a point and as long as Milan keep winning, a Champions League spot will take care of itself.
