Gattuso: We have to raise the bar!
Milan’s coach, Gennaro Gattuso, warned his players that the results achieved should not affect their setting. Rossoneri faces Rome’s Olimpico in the late Sunday Series A match.
“Luca Antonelli is the only football player who will miss the match He has physical problems and will not take part in the match but will travel with the team He will continue his treatment in Rome Our team is in very good shape But today I want to talk about Roma only – everything else is irrelevant – the results of Roma have recently shown that the team is not in the best shape, but in the first half against Shakhtar they played great football, the Ukrainians are one of the clubs with the most bigger potential in Europe.
Roma has a lot of quality on the flanks and in the midfield. We know well that they will cause us problems. We have to play a certain style of play and have the right setting to win the game.
We are facing a very strong team and we will have to raise the bar seriously. We played against Sampdoria, but the level began to rise more and more. We need to see at what level we are at the moment. I’m ready with my starting lineup, but I will not tell you.
We regained the enthusiasm of the fans. We have to go on because Milan needs his supporters.
Euro-tournaments have always been home to our team. We should not worry about going forward. I know there are quite tough games ahead of us. I am convinced that this team can achieve something. What I did not expect was the development of the team during these months. When I say that we will play as a team, people probably think I mean a healthy run and mutual help. There is more than that. In defense, we greatly improved our performance and it happened faster than I expected. That makes me very happy, “Gattuso concluded.
