Gennaro Gattuso admits Patrick Cutrone’s goal “should’ve been disallowed,” but credited Milan’s overall performance against Lazio.
“We are happy, as we took on a great team. I thank the lads for today’s wonderful performance,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium and Sky Sport Italia.
The 2-1 result at San Siro was earned with goals from Cutrone and Jack Bonaventura, but replays show Cutrone clearly turned in the Hakan Calhanoglu free kick with his arm.
“I’ll be honest, I thought it was a header at first glance. Seeing it again from that angle, it was a goal that should’ve been disallowed. Having said that, it’s reductive to talk only about one incident. There were many chances and we rode our luck at times.”
This was the first time in almost a year that Milan have won three Serie A games in a row.
“I don’t like this constant talk of every game being a turning point for Milan. We have to take it one game at a time, no matter the situation. The club spent a lot of money to invest in this squad, there were some difficulties, but now we are in good shape psychologically.”
Sky Sport Italia presenter Ilaria D’Amico is Gigi Buffon’s girlfriend, so old friend Gattuso passed on a very personal message on the Juventus goalkeeper’s 40th birthday.
“I turned 40 last month, I’ve been there. He’s a great guy and I wish him all the best. Give him a kiss with tongues from me!”
