Gattuso warns AC Milan We cant rely on Higuain for everything

first_imgAC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has warned the club that they cannot allow themselves to depend solely on Gonzalo Higuain to improve their fortunes this seasonThe Argentina international completed his move to the Rossoneri earlier this month as part of a swap deal alongside Juventus teammate Mattia Caldara with defender Leonardo Bonucci going the other way back to Turin.But it’s the arrival of Higuain that has captured the interest of the Milan supporters with his record of 111 goals in 177 appearances in the Serie A in his five years in Italy through spells with both Napoli and Juventus.And Higuain got off to a promising start for Milan by scoring against old club Real Madrid in a friendly at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.But, despite his emerging importance for Milan this season, Gattuso has cautioned against placing too many expectations on the 30-year-old.“We’re going nowhere if we just rely on one player, even if it is Higuain. It’s not enough,” said Gattuso, according to Goal.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“In order to be credible, you have to do the work throughout the week, encouraging your team-mates and not insulting them. I’ve seen all of that since he arrived here.”While Higuain had equalised for Milan, after Karim Benzema’s second-minute opener, it proved to be the only highlight of the game for the Serie A giants with Gareth Bale and Borja Mayoral both scoring to secure Real a 3-1 win.“Last season our biggest problem was that we played some attractive football without bringing home a result, and now we’ve got the same regrets, so it’s something we need to improve,” continued Gattuso.“We’ve got to avoid conceding goals at the end of each half. It was a good performance overall, the side is in good shape and plays well. In general, I am happy, as we have strengthened this summer.“It’s true the gap with Juventus remains very large, but we are young and on the right track. If we continue like this, I don’t think it’ll take long to bridge that gap.”Milan will begin their Serie A campaign at home to Genoa on Sunday.last_img
