'Fantastic' Piatek reminds Gattuso of Tomasson


Gennaro Gattuso has been impressed by Krzysztof Piatek's attitude since arriving at AC Milan, comparing the forward to Champions League winner Jon Dahl Tomasson.


Piatek arrived at San Siro last week, joining from Genoa in a reported €35million move, and made his debut off the bench in a goalless Serie A draw against Napoli on Saturday.


Head coach Gattuso would not confirm that Piatek will start ahead of Patrick Cutrone, only repeating that the two would not be paired, but he glowingly drew comparisons with former team-mate Tomasson.


"[Piatek] reminds me of Tomasson, he has very specific characteristics," Gattuso told Milan TV .


The coach was unhappy with the way Milan performed in the final stages of the league encounter with Piatek on the field, however, believing it played into Napoli's hands.


Gattuso explained: "We must start again from the first 50 minutes in the league match, showing the same kind of character.
