AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso is not letting the memories of the most harrowing defeat of his football career bother him days before his chance for revenge.

The former Rangers man makes no secret of the pain the penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League two years ago has caused him, however, next Wednesday, he and his Milan team-mates have the chance for revenge in Athens.

"I am sleeping fine," he said. "I cannot deny there is tension, but I cannot wait for the day of the game. This club takes defeat with a different class. The players always remain relaxed."
