‘Do you really think I’m thinking about playing Milan?’ – Gennaro Gattuso on potential Europa League clash with former side

Following Olympique de Marseille’s loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in the final match of the Europa League group stage, Les Olympiens will now have to endure a play-off fixture against a side dropping down from the Champions League. In his post-match press conference, attended by Get French Football News editor George Boxall at the Amex Stadium, Gennaro Gattuso addressed the prospect of a potential clash with his former side AC Milan. 

“Do you really think I’m thinking about Milan tonight? I told you, I’m thinking about Clermont and Montpellier, that’s all. Defeat hurts me right now. We’ll just have to see. Whoever we come up against, I don’t have a preference.”

“After that, we’ll see. Right now, there are two games left and we want to finish well before we all go and get some rest [during the winter break]. We knew there was a risk of two more games, so we’ll see when the time comes.”
