Suso dismissed claims today that Gennaro Gattuso was the problem at Milan, saying that the lost points are down to the players, not the manager.

Suso said to Sky:

I agree with the Coach, we have great team play and everything else, but we don’t have the mentality.

When we have to manage a lead we need to be closer on the pitch. It’s a matter of time and luck, but while it’s true we’re a young team we need to grow as quickly as possible.

Gattuso isn’t responsible though, these things are down to us. We need to be more attentive and concentrated, without being afraid.

The Champions League? We can still do it, but we can’t drop these points along the way. When you play Juventus, Inter and Roma then you can draw too, but we have to win against the smaller teams.

It’s good for a player to step up and take some responsibility, but until things start to change, it’s all talk, right?
