Gennaro Gattuso and Cristian Zapata faced the media after the game, and had some things to say.

Gattuso said:

It wasn’t easy, just as we knew it wouldn’t be. Our performance was sub-par during the first half. We were playing too straight and couldn’t find any outlets. Meanwhile, we upped the tempo in the second half but conceded foolishly at the end. We could’ve done a lot more. They didn’t worry us after Castillejo’s goal. We were always defending with six against two. It was only one incident that caught us out. We should’ve dealt with the final minutes differently but this is part of football.

He says all the right things, but it’s matches like this one that make people really question if he’s the right man for the job.
