  • Sacked Vincenzo Montella Hopes Gennaro Gattuso Does Well At Milan

Montella was sacked on Monday and replaced with Primavera boss Gattuso following a bad start to the Serie A campaign.

AC Milan youth-team boss Rino Gattuso, a former AC Milan and Italy midfielder, has been put in charge of the team.

"In these situations, the coach is always to blame and that's fair enough", Montella told reporters as he left Milan's training ground. "They deserve much more and I'm sure they will make it out of this hard phase".

Gattuso made 468 appearances for Milan during his playing career, helping the club to two Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and two Champions League crowns. Gattuso had previously coached Sion, Palermo and FC Crete.




He moved to Pisa in the third tier of Italian football, won promotion to Serie B at the first attempt in 2015-16 only for them to go straight back down the following season, with Gattuso still in charge, amid administrative and financial problems.

It is no secret that AC Milan wanted Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this past summer but the Bundesliga outfit fought off every advance and a player of his calibre that is mature today is what is missing at the heart of the Rossoneri attack.

Milan lanuguish in seventh place, 11 points away from the fourth position which would guarantee a place in the Champions League next season.

They drew 0-0 with Torino at home on Sunday and have lost six of their 14 top-flight matches this season.
