Lucas Paqueta had only nice things to say about Gennaro Gattuso when asked about working with the now former Milan manager.
Working with Gattuso was a wonderful experience.
He gave me a lot of support and helped me adapt to Serie A. What he did in the dressing room, on the training pitch, the way he talks to you and motivates you is indescribable.
Football in Italy is very tactical and played more without the ball but, with Gattuso’s help, I adapted quickly and understood what he wanted from me on the pitch.
I was used to playing differently at Flamengo and had other roles on the field. The No 10 position I have with the national team is probably my favourite.
I know I can give more to Milan and Brazil. I’m happy where I am, but I will always try to improve.
Perhaps a new manager will use a number 10 and put Paqueta at his favorite position. We can hope, right?
