AC Milan Sack Montella As Manager, Appoint Gattuso

God took his time but never forgot – Bacca reacts to Montella sacking

The result left Milan seventh in Serie A, and the gap to fourth-placed Roma, and Champions League football next season, has grown to 11 points, while the Giallorossi have a game in hand.

Gattuso was previously manager of the club's youth team.

"AC Milan announces that they have parted ways with Vincenzo Montella from the post of coach of the first team", read a club statement on Twitter.

And the patience of the hierarchy has now run out, leaving the former Fiorentina and Sampdoria coach to wish his successor well.

"Expectations were raised a bit too high by everyone in the summer". I'd take pretty much anyone though.

Gattuso made more than 450 appearances for AC Milan between 1999 and 2012, helping Milan win two Serie A titles and making 72 global appearances for Italy, being part of their 2006 World Cup winning team.

His coaching career has been a mixed bag, although never tiresome.

Montella was let go after a mediocre start to the season which has seen Milan, despite heavy investment over the summer, struggle to make anything resembling an impression in the Serie A title race.

Gattuso, of course, played for Rangers from 1997 to 1998.

He lasted six months, during which he gave an infamous expletive-ridden news conference in which he banged his fist on the table repeatedly and said, in broken English, that he expected his players to "play with balls".

Gattuso takes charge at the San Siro.
