AC Milan are not pretty to watch but at least they are turning into a team, coach Gennaro Gattuso said after his side ground out a 1-1 draw at Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday.

Gattuso, formerly a combative midfielder who played for the club for 12 years, was also happy that, for the first time in the league this season, his side managed to avoid defeat after falling behind.

Big-spending Milan have won one and drawn two out of five Serie A games since Gattuso replaced the sacked Vincenzo Montella. However, they enjoyed a morale-boosting 1-0 win over neighbours Inter Milan on Wednesday.

“We are certainly not pretty to watch but at least we are starting to do things as a team,” said Gattuso, who had not trained a Serie A side before being appointed in late November.

“The first half was not good and we were better after halftime,” said Gattuso who, dressed in his trademark all black, was a restless figure on the touchline. “It wasn’t great but at least we got a point.”

“Some players weren’t at their best but we played the match the way we had to. We ran very few risks and for the first time, we did well by reacting and equalising.”

      Don't manipulate team work. you people harass so called teammate, you people stalk your so called team mate. you people only loot ideas and manipulate other people into thinking, he is a team mate, when all you are doing is ruining his life, harassing him, stalking him, looting his ideas in the name of team mate.
