Gattuso so lucky

Milan are facing a Champions League exit, but the home defeat to Spurs could have been even worse as John D Taylor explains

Lucky not to receive the same punishment for two touchline bust-ups with Joe Jordan. And lucky that the Spurs Coach didn't take up his offer of a dust-up behind the bike sheds afterwards to settle their differences.
