Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan fall flat in Coppa Italia final against Juventus
Gennaro Gattuso has done very well to earn media coverage for AC Milan, but unfortunately, the result is not showing up. AC Milan vs Juventus fixture has grabbed the headlines this season but on all three occasions, Juventus has punished them. Milan’s latest fall came in Coppa Italia final 4-0 loss against the Bianconeri.
As like in March, Gattusso tried to convince the media with his pre-match interview but his team fall flat once again. Rossoneri lost 3-1 in Turin in Serie A return fixture after losing 0-2 at home despite Gattuso’s promise to give a hard time to Bianconeri. And, here he comes again with his rant on Juventus before Coppa Italia final.

Gattuso said, “For us, this is like a World Cup final. Juve are a great side, but they have got their defects. I hope it’s a great game, and let’s hope we don’t commit the same mistake we did in the 15 minutes in Turin.”
AC Milan boss words didn’t convert into his boys’ performance and once again it was Juve who flourish. Bianconeri defeated Rossoneri 4-0 to lift their fourth consecutive Coppa Italia title. All goals came in second-half as Mehdi Benatia grabbed his double accompanied by Douglas Costa goal and Nicola Kalinic’s own goal.
With Coppa Italia victory, Juve will enjoy their domestic double success. Bianconeri haven’t yet celebrated their seventh successive Scudetto title, but mathematically it’s over for Napoli. Juventus leads Serie A table with six points with only two games left to play and it leaves no room for Napoli to challenge them.
Gennaro Gattuso may have a chance to lead his team in Europe’s second tier next season. AC Milan currently sits at 6th on Serie A points table and he needs to make sure his team doesn’t lose that berth.
