AC Milan Manager Gennaro Gattuso has broken silence about Thursday defeat in the Europa League game against Arsenal.

The former AC Milan star revealed how his mistake meant his side “suffered” against Arsenal.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey helped lift the Gunners after a very dark week.

Milan had been resurgent of late and were on a 13-game unbeaten run before that was ended.

Gattuso, who is popular with the Rossoneri faithful, admits his side made mistakes.

When asked whether his side were outdone by the Gunners’ change in formation, Gattuso said: “No, it was actually what I had expected.

“It was 4-2-3-1; the usual squad filled in the usual way Arsenal plays.

“For sure, we suffered for the fact that technically, we made mistakes that actually followed us through the field.

“We had some difficulties with what they were going through but it’s not because they played in an unexpected because they played as usual and they have very good quality.”

And he thinks his biggest error was not relaying his tactics properly to his side.

He added: “I probably also made some mistakes not making myself well understood but we did suffer.”
