Ruud Gullit admits he’d “love to be Coach of Milan, but nobody ever called me or the other Dutch legends.”
The former midfielder won it all with Arrigo Sacchi’s side in the late 1980s and spoke to MilanNews.it ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League Final.
“It will be an interesting match, as Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are two completely different teams. I hope to see a good game,” said Gullit.
“I’d love to be the Coach of Milan, absolutely! But nobody ever asked me, or any of the other Dutch legends of the past. It’s a pity, as we’ve got experience of management at a high level.
“Evidently they see things a different way. It’d be interesting, as we brought success here, but then times have changed.”
Gullit was part of a Dutch trio with Marco van Basten and Frank Rijkaard, who have all gone on to jobs in management at various levels.
There was talk of Rijkaard returning to San Siro as a tactician, but it never materialised.
The club is in a state of flux right now, as Silvio Berlusconi is in negotiations to sell to Chinese investors.
