Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso was questioned about Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Milan's recent displays after the draw with Lazio.

Gennaro Gattuso refused to rule out a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after seeing his side scrape a 1-1 draw at Lazio but said his focus is on improving his fifth-placed team's performances.

"We'll see, but I think right now we need to concentrate on what we've got and what we need to do," he told Sky Sport Italia after his side drew with Lazio on Sunday.

"There's no point thinking about it now. I just have to get my team playing as best we can."

The Milan coach picked out defender Francesco Acerbi as Lazio's best performer, while suggesting that his players sat back too much after taking the lead.

"It can happen that you are leading in stoppage time and go a bit deep," said Gattuso.

"The difference was made by Francesco Acerbi, who caused us problems with his physicality.

"Now we look forward and hope to recover some of the injured players. I don't expect positive news from them over the next few weeks, to be honest, so we'll give room to those who haven't had as much playing time yet.

"The team pulled out something extra during difficult moments and it was wonderful preparing for this game. There's no rush to get players back, because we want to avoid relapses.

"The club has been close to me during difficult moments. Any discussions we have are for the good of Milan."
