Milan meet Atalanta on Sunday.
Gattuso said, "It was reported that I offered my resignation, but I never even thought about that. I was meeting with the club at the HQ to discuss the training retreat. This is a huge opportunity and I knew when I accepted there would be difficulties. I knew there would be hard work and 400m fans to make happy.
“We went in to the training retreat because we had to give a signal to the players and the fans. We were embarrassed. I see the lads give their all in training, but it's not enough, because in a match situation we seem to only do the bare minimum. We are fragile and seem to put ourselves in bad situations.
“We hope the fans don't protest during the game. If we suck, then they can jeer us at the final whistle. I cannot understand how we keep getting caught with both full-backs running forward simultaneously. It's no coincidence we get caught on the break, as we're dummies for falling for it."
