sbo333 Is Italy's sleeping giant finally waking up? Ahead of AC Milan's Europa League last-16 tie with Arsenal, Nick Wright looks at how Gennaro Gattuso has turned their season around and got them dreaming of a return to the glory days...


Genaro Gattuso produced all the soundbites you might expect when he was unveiled as AC Milan's new head coach in November. "We need a battlefield spirit," he growled. There was talk of "great passion" and a "never-say-die attitude". "I never want to lose," he added, "even playing table football against my son."


The former midfielder was typically bullish, but there was no hiding the size of the task ahead. Milan had spent close to £200m on 11 new signings in the summer, but a stuttering start to the season under Vicenzo Montella had left them 18 points off the top after just 14 Serie A games. For the new owners targeting a quick return to the top, patience had run out.


Gattuso's competitive edge was unchanged from his playing days and there was no disputing his love for Milan, but the scepticism which greeted his appointment was understandable. A distinguished playing career had been followed by largely unconvincing spells in charge of Sion, Palermo, OFI Crete and Pisa. Most recently, he had coached Milan's U19s.


Gattuso had the goodwill of the Rossoneri supporters who cherished his service on the pitch, but was he really the right man for the dugout? Beyond the chest-thumping and the rallying cries, did he have the managerial acumen to turn AC Milan's season around? sbo333


The early signs were not encouraging. Gattuso could hardly have asked for a kinder opening fixture than a trip to Benevento, who were yet to pick up a single point in Serie A, but Milan were denied victory by an extraordinary stoppage-time equaliser from goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli. "Maybe it would've been better to get stabbed than concede this goal," said Gattuso afterwards.


That sucker-punch was followed by an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Croatian side Rijeka in the Europa League, and soon there were domestic defeats to Verona and Atalanta too. A month into the job and the pressure was already mounting on Gattuso. "Disaster," read one headline in La Gazzetta dello Sport. "It will be a low-key Christmas at Milan."


Fast forward to now, however, and they are flying. Gattuso's side are undefeated in 13 games in all competitions since their 1-0 win over rivals Inter on December 27. It is their best run since the 2009/10 season. They are Serie A's form team, they have reached the final of the Coppa Italia, and they approach Thursday's Europa League clash with Arsenal with renewed confidence.


It is a remarkable transformation. Gattuso has galvanised the dressing room and brought the best out of summer signings such as Lucas Biglia and Leonardo Bonucci, who has compared his managerial style to that of Antonio Conte. Milan are playing with belief again and they are well organised, too. It is almost 10 hours since they last conceded a goal. Roma and Lazio are among the sides to have been kept at bay.


"Rino Gattuso has really changed the face of Milan," said his former team-mate Andriy Shevchenko at the Laureus Sports Awards in Monaco last week. "It's almost like two different teams. With Montella, Milan signed 11 players and it was a time of transition. It's always difficult when so many players come to find the perfect solution.


"The second stage, when Rino came, it has really changed the mentality of the players. Milan are starting to look like the Milan of the old days. They are compact and aggressive and very angry about the win. They will be confident against Arsenal. At the moment they look very good." sbo333

Liverpool constantly played long ball against Roma, says Daniele De Rossi

sbobet online 24 Liverpool "constantly went for the long ball" in Tuesday night's 5-2 win over Roma, says midfielder Daniele De Rossi. Goals from Mo Salah (2), Roberto Firmino (2) and Sadio Mane gave Liverpool a comfortable Champions League semi-final first-leg lead, before two late Roma goals brought them back into the tie. Roma struggled to get into the game for 80 minutes, and though midfielder De Rossi insists his side played aggressively, he admits they were not allowed to impact the midfield.

He told Mediaset Premium: "It's not right to put conceding so many goals on the defence. We all played very aggressively, even though we had the feeling of being able to affect little in midfield because they often bypassed it. They constantly went for the long ball, from any area of the pitch. "The only difference is that, against Barcelona, I felt it was an unlucky game, with dubious incidents. We had a good first 20-25 minutes here, then we were less good at covering the space, but it's difficult to do that when they're much faster than you." sbobet online 24

Roma's spectacular comeback against Barcelona in the quarter-final second leg, where they beat the Spanish side 3-0 following a 4-1 first-leg defeat, gives De Rossi hope for the second leg. "We have to hold on to what we did in the quarter-finals [against Barcelona]. That tells us it's not impossible and that we have a duty to try, for ourselves and, above all, the people who love Roma. "Today was a case of our blackout and their great quality. It won't be easy, but we have to start from here. It's not impossible and we know that." sbobet online 24
