Milan ritiro 'the last straw'

Gennaro Gattuso’s decision to send Milan into ritiro was reportedly the result of several issues with his squad.

It was initially reported by Sky Sport Italia that Gattuso took the measure after Tiemoue Bakayoko was over an hour late for training on Wednesday.

However, the broadcaster has since followed up that the incident was the Coach’s final straw, it being the latest in a ‘series’ of poor shows from his players.

Furthermore, he was described as being ‘visibly disppointed’ in the team’s conduct as he left Milanello.

The punitive training camp is expected to last between 15:00 BST on Thursday until Monday, when the Rossoneri face Bologna in their next Serie A match.
