AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso admitted he was a bit jealous of Barcelona after watching his side beat the Liga champions in the International Champions Cup on Saturday.
A late goal from Andre Silva gave AC Milan the win in a match which Barcelona had dominated.
Youngster Riqui Puig again shone for Barcelona and Gattuso has praise for the 18-year-old as well.
“It is the actual beauty of football, it is the kind of thing you cannot copy & paste, I am a bit jealous of Barcelona’s model,” he said.
”It is something that takes years to do, it’s how they feel the game.
“He [Riqui] is a spectacular footballer.
”Even though Barcelona have players that look like kids, they touch the ball with such beauty.”
