Gennaro Gattuso, coach of OM, 3-1 winner of AEK Athens: “In the first half we played well, despite a few missed pressures. But in second, we made the same mistakes as in Nice. They changed pressing and we made mistakes. We should have played wider. Their goal comes from a failed press on our part, Rongier goes too high and we gave them space. We have to be better at reading the game. In terms of the atmosphere, even if people say that I'm acting like a saint, I tell myself that in the world we live in, it would be nice to often see what we saw this evening. I would like to see more brotherhood like we saw today. The atmosphere was incredible. When you play in a stadium like that, it pushes you. It's added value for us and I always remind my players of it. I am very happy with Vitinha's match as with that of all my players. I could have given him more minutes since I arrived but he could have given a little more too. He knows what I think of him, that I want to see him train with a smile. With a smile, you play better football. We only have two attackers. “It’s hard to imagine a change of system with two strikers with him and Aubameyang together from the start.”
