Gattuso: 'It wasn't an easy game'

Gennaro Gattuso insists “there are no easy games” despite Milan sweeping Brescia aside and gives his opinion on “crazy” Mario Balotelli rumours.

The Rossoneri made short work of the Rondinelle this evening, securing a 3-0 result within the opening half-hour.

“There was nothing easy about it,” assured Gattuso. “We were fortunate to score the goal so early on, but there are no easy games in Serie A.

“We are worried by every team that we come face to face with. We know that we must get as many points as possible and focus only on ourselves.”

Kevin-Prince Boateng scored from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic assist, then Ibra netted a scorcher after Robinho had pounced on a defensive error.

“Ibrahimovic makes the difference, but if he plays on his own against XI men, he will lose.”

Gattuso was asked to comment on the increasing speculation that Balotelli – a self-confessed Milan supporter – is heading for a January move.

“It seems crazy to me, as Manchester City only bought him three months ago.”
