Gattuso: 'I hoped Inter would lose'

Milan's Gennaro Gattuso admits he hoped title rivals Inter would lose against Bayern Munich. “I did cheer against them.”

The midfielder made the revelation after last night's amazing comeback, when the Nerazzurri won 3-2 in Germany to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.

“Well, to be honest, I did cheer against them,” he told Radio Montecarlo.

“On 2-1 I thought Inter were going to concede another three or four. Yet you could tell the Bayern defence left something to be desired.

“The fact Inter went through proves that Serie A is not the way everyone likes to describe it.”

Inter are the only remaining Italian representatives in Europe and continue the Scudetto battle with Milan.

“First of all we have to focus on the next game with Palermo, which is important, and remember every match is still worth only three points. That includes the derby.”
