Gennaro Gattuso, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Samu Castillejo all spoke to press after the win over Roma last night.

Gattuso’s comments might be the best of them, as he said:

We dominated the match but for 40 minutes their defence was perfect. Castillejo and Laxalt were the game changer. Samuel came on with a competitive ferocity I had not seen before in training. He seemed a little indifferent to me. Instead, tonight he showed the qualities that made us sign him. Biglia is irreplaceable. I’m very serious when I say this. I’m not biased, he has the specific qualities I need. We have worked so hard in these last forty days but I’m sure we can be a more brilliant team

Rino will never be accused of holding his tongue, will he?
