AC Milan sterile in 0-0 Bologna draw

AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso labelled his side as sterile in the 0-0 draw for Rosonerri against Bologna lead by former teammate Filippo Inzaghi.
“We had sterile possession. If we look back, Inter won here with a similar approach, Roma lost, so we did everything right except the final ball and the finishing,” Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia.
“It was in terms of quality a mediocre performance. We basically tickled their defence rather than jabbed it. Against a side that plays with 10 men behind the ball and has no real intention of attacking, we have to be more incisive.”
Patrick Cutrone seemed unhappy at being substituted for Samu Castillejo in the second half.
“We played 4-3-3 for long periods and with different players, such as Jack Bonaventura. Having more strikers in the box doesn’t necessarily mean we fill it out more efficiently.
“I think that when we play 4-4-2, we can become a bit predictable at times for the opposition. When you play with two strikers, if they don’t make different movements to stretch out the opposition defence, it becomes impossible to break them down.
