Gennaro Gattuso’s first game in charge of Milan was spoiled in the very last minute.
The visitors were 2-1 up at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito with seconds remaining when Benevento’s keeper headed home a last-gasp equaliser.
With nothing to lose, Alberto Brignoli ventured forward as the hosts searched for their first point of the season.
The Juventus loanee headed home from a wide free-kick to finally get Benevento off the mark…
Prior to the game, they had lost all 14 of league fixtures, having scored just six goals and conceded 34.
The fact they needed their keeper to earn them their first point of the season in December tells you everything you need to know about how disastrously things have gone for Benevento in the last few months.
But you can’t take anything away from a truly magic moment.
Gattuso couldn’t have asked for easier start to his tenure as Milan gaffer having taken over from Vincenzo Montella earlier in the week.
However, the result continues the Rossoneri’s relatively underwhelming season when you consider they spent in approximately £200million in the summer.
Goals from Giacomo Bonaventura and Nikola Kalinic were not enough to give Milan a much-needed three points and they now find themselves well off the pace in terms of the title race and the scrap for European qualification.
They are five points off Sampdoria in 6th place despite the fact they’ve played two games more.
Benevento still look set for relegation and could well finish with a record low in terms of points.
However, you don’t see a keeper score a last-minute goal every week… so that’s something to cheer at least.
