    Italian coach Gianni de Biasi has expressed his satisfaction at the work AC Milan boss Gattuso is doing at AC Milan.

    AC Milan went 10 games unbeaten in all competitions at the start of 2018 and Gattuso has been singled out for praise for giving the team a mentality, the players a sense of belonging and fitness levels, basically everything the team lacked under the tutelage of Vincenzo Montella.

    De Biasi who was the first coach of Albania to qualify them for a major commended Gattuso for a job well done and for leading Milan to Europa League qualification this season.

    De Biasi told RMC: "He did very well for his first experience in Serie A. He gave grit to a very young team and that with some grafting can grow so much in terms of maturity, but we cannot talk about the Scudetto.

    "Inter? In the end, the field has spoken even if I am sorry for Lazio that in the middle can also count on a fantastic player like (Sergej) Milinkovic-Savic."

    Furthermore, club's captain Leonardo Bonucci has commended Gennaro Gattuso for revitalising the club and acknowledged his effort in 'forming a team' at the Rossoneri. Sacked manager Vincenzo Montella failed to create a gel between Milan's new signings and find a formation that best suite the team winning just six of their 14 league matches.

    Moreover, AC Milan chief executive Marco Fassone admits Nikola Kalinic has struggled in his first season with the Rossonero and for the club to get better, they need to get in some striker.

    Kalinic joined Milan last summer from Fiorentina couldn't replicate the form that got him attracted to Milan. Fassone believes that the inclusion of two or three more experienced players could certainly help the rest of the squad.

    AC Milan scored only 56 goals in their 38 Serie A games this season, at least five fewer than all the teams who finished above them.
    “The attack is one of the areas we're certainly worked on," Fassone confirmed on Radio Anch'io Sport.

    “We haven't scored enough goals and that's clear to everyone. I won't make any promises, but I know that when you talk about the history of Milan you talk about great strikers.

    “Kalinic is a player who has always score, but he's had difficult settling, even though he's improved in recent games. Mario Mandzukic or Karim Benzema? There's nothing on those players."
