Coach Gattuso and Gigio Donnarumma's comments following the match at the Marassi
Coach Gattuso spoke to Milan TV following AC Milan's 1-0 defeat away to Sampdoria. This is what he had to say:
"We played better than we did against Chievo and in other games that we've won. I'm not seeing a team that is completely off its game, but we got it wrong in the first half, when the difference between the sides was their level of quality. After the break, we increased the pressure, managing to do much better than what we did in the Derby. But one fact still remains: we're standing here talking about another defeat."
"He made a mistake, but this is part of the game."
"It would be easy to say something about the referee now. I like VAR. If Orsato has made a mistake, those in charge will make sure he'll pay the consequences for this. Nevertheless, I think it was a decision made in good faith."
"There wasn't a problem with Kessie, it was simply a choice made on a technical basis. Bakayoko? He grew into it in the second half, I was pleased with him. Calhanoglu? He has the qualities to play using just two touches. Physically, he's fine, and he's managing to keep the tempo high playing from a midfield position."
Gigio Donnarumma also spoke to the Rossoneri’s Club channel after the game:
“I’m sorry for the mistake I made. We’ve lost a match in which we’ve given everything. I would like to thank my teammates who came over to console me after the goal. However, it’s not a mistake that will destroy everything. In the past, we’ve already demonstrated that we know how to react, and we’ll have the opportunity to do so in three days. We need to get back to work immediately and get the three points against Udinese.”
