AC Milan coach Gattuso eager to ease tension with Lazio

AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso is eager to ease tension with Lazio.

The teams will go head-to-head again at San Siro in next Wednesday's Coppa Italia semi-final.

The match will be held with the backdrop of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Franck Kessie waving the shirt of Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi after victory last week.

Gattuso said, "We must focus only on what is on the pitch. There was an incident, we were wrong and we apologised.

“I have a dream that Milan and Lazio can walk out on to the field arm-in-arm so we can put an end to this controversy."
