Salvini: Gattuso 'best' for Milan, but...

Deputy PM Matteo Salvini insists Gennaro Gennaro is ‘Milan’s best Coach’ but maintains the draw with Lazio ‘would’ve ended differently with some changes’.

Salvini lashed out at Gattuso’s tactics after Milan fell to a last-gasp Lazio equaliser on Sunday, but the Rossoneri fan has now backtracked on his initial criticism.

“Gattuso is the best Coach Milan can have and I spoke as a fan,” the Lega Nord leader [pictured, right] told ANSA.

“Let’s say that maybe with some changes, the game would’ve ended differently. I have immense esteem for Gattuso as a player and Coach.

“When the score was still 1-0 to us, the Lazio Coach made three changes, bringing on three fresh players, and we didn’t, even though they were pressing us for the last 20 minutes.”
