The USA preseason tour is now over, and Milan will head back to Italy to get ready for the new Serie A season.
This is also the first preseason under Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso, so how it’s going for the Milan players?
#ACMilan winger Suso admits “it’s been one of the hardest pre-seasons I can remember”, thanks to Coach Gennaro Gattuso - "he has Milan DNA, he transmits passion and enthusiasm for the club" https://t.co/ymXjW8jl72 pic.twitter.com/mrri7Ym3fz— footballitalia (@footballitalia) August 4, 2018
Suso said about the preseason,
I noticed the change when I arrived [in Italy], physically and tactically they work a lot more than in Spain or England. There are a lot more video sessions and sessions without the ball.
Gattuso is a Coach who likes to play, but he also pays a great deal of attention to the physical side. It’s been one of the hardest pre-seasons I can remember.
He has Milan DNA, and he transmits a lot of enthusiasm and passion for the club. We improved when he took over.
So basically, it’s exactly what you would expect from a Rino Gattuso preseason.
