AC Milan coach Gattuso happy to see Andre Silva prove Genoa matchwinner

AC Milan coach Rino Gattuso was delighted with victory over Genoa on Sunday.

Andre Silva came off the bench and nodded in a Suso cross with the last kick of the game, his first Serie A goal.

“We were worried and I was curious frankly to see how we'd react to our first defeat in two and a half months. I got a good response," Gattuso told Mediaset Premium.

“My compliments to Genoa, as they caused us huge problems, but we played with character, moved the ball around without fear and I really appreciated that aspect.

“If you look at the table, we have closed the gap a great deal. There are still 11 games to go, seven of them at home. We'll see. It's important to get a few players back in shape.

“I'm happy that Andre Silva scored his first Serie A goal. It's already hard to carry this prestigious jersey, even more so when you are young, but we must continue our work and grow over time, believing in ourselves."
