AC Milan chief Abbiati: Rino told some home truths after Benevento shock

AC Milan team manager Christian Abbiati has praised coach Rino Gattuso for the way he's handled the squad this past week.

Milan defeated Bologna on Sunday after their home humiliation by Benevento last week.

“Rino said these things to raise everyone's concentration level and keep everyone on their toes. The week was calm, he did well to keep the team together and we have an important objective to achieve. Today's game is crucial," Abbiati told Mediaset Premium.

“We've had so many matches this season and it's only natural there will be some fatigue. We've all got to help each other, including those who come off the bench.

“When Milan play against the big clubs, both sides tend to be more open and attacking, whereas the smaller clubs try to defend more.

“What we lack is the courage to take men on. Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu can, but they're not always available and the others need to start doing that too."
