Bertolacci: Milan's fault I didn't play

Andrea Bertolacci has argued that his failure to play in Serie A for Milan last season was “more a choice of the club” and not Gennaro Gattuso.

Milan splashed out €20m on Bertolacci in the summer of 2015, but the midfielder failed to make any League appearances in the past campaign-and-a-half under Gattuso and recently signed for Sampdoria.

“I knew before signing that I could cross paths with Gattuso again, but I would’ve had no problem with him,” the 28-year-old told Il Secolo XIX.
