Gianluigi Donnarumma made two crucial errors as AC Milan lost to Juventus in the Coppa Italia final, but his manager Gennaro Gattuso refused to lay total blame on his young goalkeeper.
Donnarumma was at fault for two of Juve’s four goals, but Gattuso said afterwards that both he, his staff and the goalkeeper’s teammates also made mistakes in the 4-0 defeat.
Watch what Gattuso had to say in the video below.
Juventus crushed AC Milan 4-0 on Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico to win a fourth consecutive Italian Cup.
Mehdi Benatia opened the floodgates after 56 minutes for the first of a double of the night for the Moroccan with Douglas Costa also finding the net in the space of nine minutes.
A Nikola Kalinic own goal accounted for the fourth.
It was the 13th Cup win for Juventus, who are also poised to become the first Italian team to complete the double for four years in a row.
Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off early as Napoli‘s title hopes took a severe knock on Sunday with a Giovanni Simeone hat-trick giving Fiorentina a shock 3-0 win which allows Juventus to close in on the Serie A title.
With just three games left, Juventus have a four-point lead and could wrap up a seventh straight league title next weekend.
Koulibaly, the hero who scored the last-gasp header that kept Napoli’s ambitions alive with a 1-0 win over Juventus in Turin last week, was sent off after just eight minutes.
Argentina forward Simeone – the son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone – scored all three goals in a spectacular display to keep Fiorentina’s Europa League hopes alive.
Maurizio Sarri’s side fell four points behind Juventus who battled past 10-man Inter Milan in a 3-2 San Siro thriller on Saturday night with two late goals in three minutes.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side play at home against Bologna on Saturday and could win the Scudetto if Napoli fail to win at home against Torino on Sunday.
