Milan: 'Full faith in Gattuso'

Milan President Paolo Scaroni has “full confidence” in Coach Gennaro Gattuso and the directors. “We’re within three points of the Champions League.”

The Rossoneri beat Bologna 2-1 on Monday evening to close the gap on fourth-placed Atalanta.

“I saw positive signs from the team against Bologna, as they fought hard and remained in the game despite the difficulties,” Scaroni told news agency Ansa as he left the Lega Serie A meeting.

“Despite everything, we are still within three points of the Champions League zone, so I am feeling confident ahead of these final rounds of the season.

“There will be tests that are not easy, but the whole club is working hard to ensure we get the maximum possible results.”

Scaroni was asked about the continual reports that Coach Gattuso is set to for the axe, possibly followed by director Leonardo.

“We have full confidence in the Coach and our sporting directors, including in the light of the way they dealt with recent critical issues.”
