AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso claims that his side was definitely not in a crisis after claiming a 3-1 victory over Chievo during the weekend. Milan came into the game after having picked up only two wins from the first six games of the campaign. However, they were able to claim a 3-0 lead in the game thanks to goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Giacomo Bonaventura. However, Chievo did grab a consolation goal and it prevented a clean sheet for Milan. Still,Gattuso was extremely happy with the performance and claims that Milan had never really been in a crisis as the media had led people to believe.
“The performances were always there, we were just missing the three points. The worst performance was on Thursday against Olympiacos [a 3-1 win in the Europa League].We made mistakes again today, gifting their goal, but we always want to play the ball. This wasn’t a team in crisis before, we just struggled to kill games off after good performances. At times we run a few too many risks at the back, but we do want to play the ball and keep it moving,” said Gattuso.
