Gennaro Gattuso believes Milan “pulled out something extra during difficult moments” after their 1-1 draw against Lazio.
Despite an apocalyptic injury list and Gonzalo Higuain suspended, the Rossoneri were leading until a 94th-minute Joaquin Correa half-volley.
“It can happen that you are leading in stoppages and go a bit deep. The difference was made by Francesco Acerbi, who caused us problems with his physicality,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“Now we look forward and hope to recover some of the injured players. I don’t expect positive news from them over the next few weeks, to be honest, so we’ll give room to those who haven’t had as much playing time yet.
“The team pulled out something extra during difficult moments and it was wonderful preparing for this game. There’s no rush to get players back, because we want to avoid relapses.
“The club has been close to me during difficult moments. Any discussions we have are for the good of Milan.”
Gattuso was asked again about the reports of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival from the LA Galaxy.
“We’ll see, but I think right now we need to concentrate on what we’ve got and what we need to do. There’s no point thinking about it now. I just have to get my team playing as best we can.”
