Gattuso up for Nantes job

Former Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso has emerged as the favourite to replace Vahid Halilhodzic at FC Nantes.

The Ligue 1 club is without a tactician after 67-year-old Halilhodzic sensationally resigned just hours before a friendly draw against Genoa.

He had only taken over in October 2018.

According to French site Soccerlink, Nantes have approached Gattuso to ask about his availability and are waiting for a response.

Gattuso terminated his Milan contract by mutual consent after steering them to fifth place in Serie A last season.

The second choice for Nantes is Stephane Ziani.
