Gattuso axed as Sion boss

Italian 2006 World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso is no longer the Player Coach of Swiss side FC Sion, the club confirmed on Monday.

Gattuso, who left Milan last summer, was hired in February but he and assistant Arno Rossini have been replaced by Under-21 boss Michael Decastel.

FC Sion lost 5-0 to St Gallen at the weekend, meaning that Gattuso had only picked up 10 points from 11 games in charge.

Gattuso will continue at the club as a player.
