Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has refused to dwell on Gonzalo Higuain’s departure from the club after the Argentine recently joined Chelsea on a short-term loan.

As reported by Goal, the Italian has vowed to turn his attention to Higuain’s replacement, Krzysztof Piatek who Milan signed from Genoa for a rumoured £30 million.

Higuain’s six months at the San Siro proved to be quite underwhelming as he scored just six goals in 15 Serie A games.

Gattuso refused to talk about Higuain’s departure, saying, “he’s now in the past”.

With regards to Piatek, he added:

We have signed a really determined player. We lose a top striker but we have a new one who can really help us, a very physical player who has an eye for goal.

Piatek is a man of few words. He has lots of enthusiasm and was really surprised with how he was welcomed by his new team-mates and the coaching staff.

Piatek came off the bench in the latter stages of Milan’s goalless draw at home to Napoli on Saturday.

As for Higuain, he made his debut for the Blues on Sunday as Chelsea beat Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
