Carlo Ancelotti: Steven Gerrard is talking ‘bollocks’


22nd, May 2007


52979752.jpgAC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti has accused Steven Gerrard of talking ‘bollocks’ ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League final in Athens. Gerrard famously claimed Milan prematurely celebrated victory at half-time in the 2005 final when they led Liverpool 3-0.
But Ancelotti hit back, telling The Current Bun: ‘There’s only one word to describe what Gerrard says about our so-called celebrations – bollocks! We lost our heads in those six minutes when we let Liverpool come back from 3-0 down. But what we actually did at half-time was to tell ourselves there were 45 minutes to go and we needed to carry on playing as we were.’
Gerrard’s accusations have also been denied by midfielder/singing midget Gennaro Gattuso, who was branded ‘a kitten’ in Stevie G’s autobiography. Gattuso said: ‘If Gerrard says I am a kitten then I must be an ugly, bearded kitten. But I will not respond to these provocations. Gerrard’s a great player and my only answer to him will be on the pitch.’
More fuel for the fire. Boy, I can’t wait for tomorrow…

    That’s the best reaction to being called a kitten. “I must be an ugly, bearded kitten.” Genius.

  2. Matt Parker says:

    Well, that’s Gennaro for you. He is awesome after all.

  3. Abby says:

    I was never all that into Serie A, or the Italian national team for that matter, but I’m definitely becoming a fan of Gattuso.
