Gennaro Gattuso represents the sixth change of management at Milan since Max Allegri was fired in January 2014.
Vincenzo Montella was given the axe this morning with a surprise statement, as the 0-0 draw with Torino proved the final straw.
Gattuso has been promoted from the role of Primavera youth team Coach to the main role, though it’s unclear whether he will remain to the end of the season or merely take a caretaker position.
This is the sixth change of tactician at San Siro since Allegri was dismissed on January 25, 2014.
Clarence Seedorf took over for the rest of the 2014-15 season, having 28 games at the helm.
Pippo Inzaghi lasted for the entire 2015-16 campaign, again promoted from the Primavera bench.
Sinisa Mihajlovic was appointed in the summer of 2015 and was fired in April 2016, despite reaching the Coppa Italia Final.
Primavera tactician Cristian Brocchi was given the job for the remainder of the season.
Montella was brought in during the summer of 2016 and has been fired after 64 competitive matches.
L’Aeroplanino’s tally was 33 wins, 13 draws and 18 defeats, an average of 1.75 points per game.
However, Montella did win their only trophy in recent years, beating Juventus for the Italian Super Cup in December 2016.
