Rino Gattuso admits AC Milan are focused on finishing inside the top four this season.
The midfielder said: "The game against Napoli will be difficult, but we are conscious that we did well in Dubai.
"We have an important objective - to finish fourth. It's unthinkable for Milan to finish outside the Champions League spots."
"Nobody knows if he will start, but we are all expecting so much from him because of the great things he does in training," Gattuso explained.
"We have to be careful not to put too much pressure on him, but that pressure partly comes from the big fee we paid to sign him. On paper he is a champion, now he needs to prove it."
