Gattuso swipes at Inter fans
Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso slammed the fans of city rivals Internazionale for criticising their team too much.
The tough-tackling midfielder finds it hard to believe that Inter have not won the Serie A title since 1989, despite assembling a number of top quality squads in that period.
Gattuso says that the Nerazzurri's fans do not help matters as they are quick to criticise their side at the first sign of trouble.
The former Rangers man says they should follow Liverpool's loyal fans in backing their side, although he surprisingly took a swipe at England striker Michael Owen in the process.
"It sometimes seems incredible to me, because Inter always start the season with an amazing team and then something goes wrong," said Gattuso.
"If I look back at the 2001/02 season, I still find it hard to believe that they lost the top place in the last match at Stadio Olimpico against Lazio.
"That must be a nightmare for their fans.
"I believe the Inter fans get discouraged at the team's first bad performance. They suddenly think the season's already lost and they start to throw hard criticism towards the world's best strikers.
"Inter fans should learn from the Kop. Michael Owen hasn't done anything good for Liverpool in a year, but he still has Anfield supporting him 100 percent."
- Those words i highlighted, i agree with him 100%. One bad result or one missed opportunity and the hell breaks loose. We definitely should NOT criticize our team nor the players as much as we do.
