AC Milan midfielder Gattuso hits out at media

He said: “We all really wanted this result. The Coach was absolutely massacred in the Press this week and we were all eager to take some of that pressure off his back, it was completely unfair what was said.

“The problem is that in Italy we play the games in the newspapers first and then on the field later. We heard nothing but how many points our opponents had and how disastrous our position became despite the fact we hadn’t played yet.”
