The manager had some things to say before tonight’s Coppa Italia final in Rome.

Gennaro Gattuso said at the press conference:

Preparing a Final as a coach is very different. When I was a player I used to do weird stuff, I was very superstitious and I tried to do things on my own. It’s a totally different world as a coach. You watch video after video and analyse your opponents, you go to bed and then you think: “I have all my life to sleep” so you go back to watching more videos. I feel a lot of pressure, because of our millions of fans, because of my players and all the people close to me who love me and wish me well. It is the most important match of my career as a coach. Let’s hope all goes well tomorrow

Gattuso’s not wrong, and while Juventus are the favorites in this match, Milan do have ability to catch Juve napping and grab a result.
