first_imgAC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso believes Gonzalo Higuain has ended a barren run of goals in their 2-1 win over SPAL something he attributed to a mental block.The visitors took an early lead via Andrea Petagna before Gattuso’s men rescued the game thanks to Samu Castillejo and Higuain who completed the comeback.“I liked the team’s performance a great deal, both technically and tactically. I liked the mentality of the side, that knew how to suffer,” the Coach told Football Italia.“We could’ve killed it off earlier and must continue to improve. We’ve had to deal with all sorts of things this year. Now we go to Doha without Suso for the Italian Super Cup, one of our most important players, but I don’t want any alibis.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“We had two big games in December that we didn’t make the most of, but we’ve just got to lick our wounds and keep going.”Perhaps even more important than the victory was Higuain breaking his two-month goal drought.“He lives for the goal, has always been a marksman and therefore really struggled to deal with this negative period. The defeat to Juventus, with the penalty and red card, was a terrible blow for him.“Higuain needs to rediscover that consistency and precision in his finishing, because he has always had those elements. We’ve missed him and hope this has also broken through that mental block.”last_img read more
