AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso held a pre-match press conference at Milanello ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash vs. Dudelange: “We have to remember how much we struggled in the first game against them. We have to take care and don’t underestimate them. I’ll make some changes. Strinic can start. If he will we’ll play with four defenders, if not we’ll play with three men at the back. Europa League is an important competition for us. We must win tomorrow.”

INJURIES – “I spoke with Bonaventura before and after the surgery. It was a problem the he’s had for a long time. He will remain in the US for a month and then he will return here. Musacchio will start to run a bit from next week. I hope Romagnoli will be eligible to play in two weeks, Caldara return in February, Biglia will remain out for a long time.”

BAKAYOKO – “Sometimes it was my fault. His performances were not great at the beginning, now he is playing on a regular basis and his performances are good. He has self-confidence and he is proving to be an important player.”

SALVINI – “He sent me some texts, we spoke and it’s all ok now, everybody has his own problems.”

EVRA – “I don’t know what he said. I don’t want to create controversies.”
