While progress can best be described as ‘stuttering’, Milan did battle to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Lazio in Serie A on Sunday evening.

The Rossoneri continue to tread water down in 7th place, but the impressive result did constitute their fourth win in five matches in what has been a largely mediocre season thus far.

However, team morale doesn’t seem to be an issue, with Gattuso doing a grand job of clubbing his players together against a common enemy: himself.

Indeed, the 40-year-old assembled his charges in a huddle in the middle of the San Siro and invited them to take out their frustrations by slapping their mean old head coach…

Speaking shortly after having seven bells knocked out of him, Gattuso told reporters:

I just want to make them (my team) happy, especially the players who are angry with me because are on the bench, so now they have chance to slap me.

What a man. Honestly, we’d expect nothing less.
