Gattuso ultimatum: “Never again like Cagliari”

AC Milan offered an embarrassing performance against Cagliari. Coach Gattuso has warned his players to never repeat the same display.

Never again a submissive and deconcentrated AC Milan like that one seen in Cagliari. Coach Gennaro Gattuso has repeated it several times in the last hours, publicly but also within the walls of Milanello, reports Il Corriere dello Sport.

Severe consequences will follow if such an approach were to be repeated. Also because, although it is true that the Rossoneri could won at the Sardinia Arena in the final moments of the game, in the eyes of the coach remains the poor figure of those initial 20 minutes in which Alessio Romagnoli and companions were literally at the mercy of their opponents after the fast goal of Joao Pedro. “It was the worst start of my team ever“, declared Rino for Milan TV yesterday. A fraction of the game that affected and conditioned the entire match.

So after the bitter defeat against Napoli where the boys were leading 2-0 for nearly an hour, the Rossoneri return from another away game still without the full three points. Empoli will be next, but first attention to Thursday night’s Europa League opener with Dudelange and then Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta on Sunday night at the San Siro stadium.

For a great Milan, meanwhile, it will be necessary for the forwards to find a perfect harmony with Gonzalo Higuain. It will be essential to put the Argentine bomber in the proper condition to score. The base is excellent but can be further improved. The feeling with Hakan Calhanoglu and Suso still has great room for improvement.
