So, yeah, Gattuso had some opinions about Hachim Mastour.

Speaking of him during today’s press conference:

We’ve talked a lot lately.

I even threatened him because he became more famous for making videos than playing, but he doesn’t do that anymore because I told him I’d knock his teeth out!

In recent months he’s improved some things in training and we decided to let him play in the Primavera.

The train has passed but he’s not 50-years-old, he’s 20-years-old [in June] and I think he has to take stock of his mistakes.

He needs to play consistently, because we can see he’s lost some match sharpness. I’ve noticed a few improvements though.

So will the lad ever make it a Milan? Who knows, but at least Gattuso will get his head on straight.
