Gattuso: ‘Belotti like Shevchenko’

Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso says Torino’s Andrea Belotti is the best striker he’s seen since Andriy Shevchenko - “when he’s fit he’s the complete striker”.

The Rossoneri face the Granata in Turin tomorrow night, and their Coach is full of admiration for the Toro number 9.

“I’ve always said he’s the one who surprised me most after Sheva,” Gattuso said in his pre-match press conference.

“He went through a bad period, but when he’s fit he’s the complete striker. I’ve always liked him, he’s been very good in recent seasons.

“He’s a nice lad too, and that’s something I’ve always really appreciated.

“Torino are a team that fights and has quality players, tomorrow will be very difficult for us, we expended a lot against Napoli.

“We need to give consistency to what we did with Napoli, I don’t want to see us go backward. Maximum concentration, if we don’t go there with the right attitude we risk making fools of ourselves.

“Their front three has great quality, Belotti knows how to attack the area well, they have a mix of quality and quantity.

“They’re a well-constructed team that can cause problems for anyone.

“They’re a team that have legs out wide, they have quality in attack and they’re very dangerous. They play on the counter-attack a lot, they close things up well and then break fast.

“They’re not a team that construct a lot.”
