Sacchi praises Gattuso character

Arrigo Sacchi has praised Gennaro Gattuso’s character but refused to pass judgment on how the new Milan boss would fare.

Gattuso was surprisingly confirmed as Vincenzo Montella’s successor earlier in the week, but while Sacchi felt the former Milan midfielder had the right profile to do well, he also suggested the Rossoneri’s players had to step up.

“He’s a good guy, intelligent, prepared,” the coaching veteran told La Stampa.

“Do Milan have the right players? In football, everything starts from them.”
