Gennaro Gattuso believes former Real Madrid striker, Gonzalo Higuain cannot carry AC Milan alone.
The former Napoli striker made the switch on loan to Milan from Juventus with Caldara, as Bonucci joined Juventus on loan.
Despite his potential importance in 2018-19, Gattuso wants to avoid his team becoming too dependent on the prolific Argentina international.
“We’re going nowhere if we just rely on one player, even if it is Higuain. It’s not enough,” he told a news conference in the Spanish capital.
“In order to be credible, you have to do the work throughout the week, encouraging your team-mates and not insulting them. I’ve seen all of that since he arrived here.”
“Last season our biggest problem was that we played some attractive football without bringing home a result, and now we’ve got the same regrets, so it’s something we need to improve,” he said.
“We’ve got to avoid conceding goals at the end of each half. It was a good performance overall, the side is in good shape and plays well. In general, I am happy, as we have strengthened this summer.
“It’s true the gap with Juventus remains very large, but we are young and on the right track. If we continue like this, I don’t think it’ll take long to bridge that gap.”
