AC Milan coach Gattuso frustrated after Parma draw

AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Parma.

Samu Castillejo struck with a header to put AC Milan ahead, but a late Bruno Alves free kick earned Parma the point.

Gattuso said: "We were lucky to take the lead and then Parma made the most of that free kick with a wonderful goal. They deserved the point.

Parma have specific characteristics, defend with five men and we knew how they played. It was hot for both teams, but they had more determination than us at times.

“We were naïve, for example giving away the free kick. Maybe I am not a good enough Coach yet to let the players realise the importance of these small details.

“I am objective and like to say things how they are. I expected to come here and do more, albeit knowing the difficulties Parma could cause us.

“We were unlucky on what would've been our second goal, as the offside trap was very tight. That's how it goes."
