[Gennaro Gattusso on Steven Gerrard] For me, it’s not about Gattuso against Gerrard, despite what he said. For me, Gerrard is the best player in England. He is a technical player, who plays very hard and with his heart. He is a legend for his club and the best player they’ve got. I have more respect for him because I remember that final in Istanbul. We had won it but then he played a great game and changed everything. I watched him against Chelsea on Tuesday and he was amazing, unbelievable. I still say I have respect for him and like the way he plays. I am looking forward to playing him again and looking him in the eye before it starts. This will be a very important game for us both

[Gennaro Gattuso tells about life as a coach] My work is to be the players’ nightmare until the end of the season. I didn’t expect anything when I arrived, I just knew I’d been handed a hot potato. I like to suffer, I don’t enjoy things that are too easy, so I chose Milan because this is my home. I wore this jersey for 14 years, it’s a part of me. Working here is wonderful and we’ll see how it ends

I train a great club and it is right for me to take responsibility
