Milan President Paolo Scaroni had some nice things to say about Gennaro Gattuso and Kryzsztof Piatek.

Scaroni said:

Piatek has scored many goals in Genoa, Krakow and Milan. I’m happy with the atmosphere that has been created, both for Piatek and Paqueta, but also for everyone else.

We have become a team, and that’s thanks to Gattuso first and foremost. The team moves in unison.

Gattuso is Gattuso. The character he had as a player, he has as a Coach. He has the players on his side and we owe him a lot. The season is full of pitfalls, just think of the injuries. Slowly we are moving in the right direction.

While Scaroni’s not exactly Gattuso’s boss, he is one of the top people at Milan, so keeping him happy will go a long way towards guaranteeing gainful employment for Gattuso.
