Gattuso: 'They gave us up for dead'

Gennaro Gattuso had a point to prove. “They gave us up for dead, but it's even better that we beat a rival like Inter.”

Milan celebrated their first Scudetto in seven years thanks to tonight's 0-0 draw away to Roma.

“This title is very special for us, as they gave us up for dead. Instead...” smiled the veteran midfielder.

“It's a great victory for me personally, as they thought I was finished too. This is a wonderful feeling.

“It's even better that we beat a rival like Inter to the title. When there's this type of passion, you can't help but do well.”

Several of the old guard look to be moving on this summer, although Gattuso does not appear to be one of them.

“I hope this win can open up a whole new era for Milan. My own journey is almost at an end, but when a club invests in top players, it will win.

“How do I rate Massimiliano Allegri? Well, 10 out of 10, obviously!”
