‘Gattuso the man to lift Milan’

Gennaro Gattuso’s former sporting director claims the new Milan boss “is the man that will lift the Rossoneri.”

Marco Degennaro oversaw Gattuso’s first coaching role at Sion in 2013, and the Italian is backing his countryman to prove he is “the best choice” for Milan after Vincenzo Montella’s dismissal on Monday.

“Gattuso? He’s the best choice for Milan, Rino’s the man that will lift the Rossoneri,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.

“He started out with us, and even back then, you could see that he had great qualities. I wish him the best of luck, even if I’ve already done so privately.

“He has the ability to confront a group. He’s genuine and direct. I’m sure he’ll do well.”
