Gennaro Gattuso spoke to Milan TV after the win over Atalanta yesterday.

On the subject of the team, Gattuso said:

Results are helping us, they’re bringing enthusiasm. I like the feeling at Milanello, there’s a positive atmosphere. We need to continue like this and work with a sense of calm. We’re keeping our feet on the ground, we need to believe in what we’re doing.

Gattuso, if nothing else, has shown that he can motivate these players. Perhaps this team is ready to go on a run and grab a Champions League spot after all.

On to the links.
