Milan: Six Coaches in under four years

Gennaro Gattuso represents the sixth change of management at Milan since Max Allegri was fired in January 2014.

Vincenzo Montella was given the axe this morning with a surprise statement, as the 0-0 draw with Torino proved the final straw.

Gattuso has been promoted from the role of Primavera youth team Coach to the main role, though it’s unclear whether he will remain to the end of the season or merely take a caretaker position.

This is the sixth change of tactician at San Siro since Allegri was dismissed on January 25, 2014.

Milan: Gattuso to replace Montella?

Milan are reportedly considering whether to sack Vincenzo Montella and replace him with Gennaro Gattuso.

According to La Repubblica, Montella is “close to the axe again” after Milan’s goalless draw with Torino on Sunday, which left them 11 points adrift of the Champions League places.

Consequently, the “No 1 candidate” to replace the Coach would be Gattuso, who returned to the Rossoneri over the summer, taking charge of the their Primavera team.

Gattuso: ‘Pirlo made me want to quit’

Gennaro Gattuso says watching Milan teammate Andrea Pirlo made him want to “change profession”.

The pair played together for Carlo Ancelotti’s Rossoneri, with Ringhio doing the leg work while his more creative teammate supplied the fantasy.

Following the latter’s retirement yesterday, Gattuso was asked on Radio 24 whether his work had made Pirlo better, and he scoffed at the suggestion.

“Don’t talk nonsense, let’s not confuse Nutella with ****,” the Milan Primavera boss replied.

Montella can revive Milan again

Vincenzo Montella fixed Milan’s problems once and he can do it again, writes Richard Hall, if given time.

The Duomo di Milano sits proudly in the aptly named Piazza del Duomo and is perhaps the ever- present symbol of Milanese patience. The ground was broken to create the structure in 1386 and it was officially completed in 1965. The city’s second cathedral, at San Siro, has also evolved over the years and it is perhaps to these great creations that fans of the Rossoneri should look to when beckoning in change. Their team is also undergoing a vast facelift and, whilst the results are not yet as beautiful as they want right now, there is reason to be patient.
