“I have a good relationship with Gattuso, he trusts me and I trust him. He has a lot of expectations, sometimes he’d like to be on the pitch with us. We’ve changed since he arrived here.
“We play every game as a final, we are a big team and we have a deeper squad compared to the last seasons. The boss makes everyone feel important, whoever plays always give his best.”
