Gianluca Zambrotta said nice things about Gennaro Gattuso. The former Juventus and Milan player was complimentary towards his former teammate and the job he’s doing as manager at Milan.

Talking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Zambrotta said:

I would say there are two, on the one hand, there’s the tactical strength that he’s given the team.

On the other, there’s the skill he’s shown in getting the best out of his players and letting them grow.

Bakayoko’s development has been impressive, although Biglia’s return has offered an extra solution in midfield.

There’s also the defence, from the serenity that Donnarumma plays with to the compactness of the Musacchio-Romagnoli pairing in central defence. They’ve grown a lot.

I also like the way Suso and Calhanoglu are being used. Rino has chosen the most suitable solution for the players at his disposal.

He puts out a solid team, where everyone gives a helping hand defensively. The signing of Piatek did the rest.

Gattuso certainly looks a lot smarter when Piatek and Paquetà on the pitch, doesn’t he?
