Gattuso: 'I could've joined Boca'

Gennaro Gattuso reveals he almost went to play for Boca Juniors in 2012, but his wife blocked the transfer. “She’s the one in charge of my household.”

It might’ve been a very different story, as Rino told Fox Sports in Argentina, with quotes picked up by Marca Claro.
