Lippi worked with Gattuso, the player, as Italy coach and has no doubts about the Rossonero chief's character.
He said, "Rino would give everything he has in the world to create positive conditions for the resumption of this Milan because he is so tied to Milan.
"There are so many things that Milan would need to do now, to make it right. From the psychological point of view, surely I have the feeling that the team is lacking in conviction and self-esteem, it is lost at the first difficulty.
"There is no doubt that if there is a person who can transmit these things to the team it is Gattuso."
