Gennaro Gattuso reaped a lot of support after being appointed as AC Milan’s new coach to replace the sacked Vincenzo Montella on Monday (27/11/2017). One of them came from his former colleagues while still a player, Massimo Ambrosini.
Gattuso and Ambrosini have played together at AC Milan for several years. They both contributed berandil in delivering AC Milan champions Serie A in 2004 and the Champions League in 2003 and 2007 under the care of Carlo Ancelotti.
“The club made a bold choice by pointing Rino (nickname Gattuso),” said Ambrosini as reported by Sky.
According to Ambrosini, Gattuso’s long experience of defending AC Milan (1999-2012) will have a major impact in his later performance.
“In some cases, charisma and personality can bring a lot of influence, and in this case his personality will help a lot,” he said.
