After the Goalless Draw with Torino at home on Sunday AC Milan has sacked Vincenzo Montella and replaced him with Gennaro Gattuso as the first team coach.
This follows the team’s loss of six out of fourteen top-flight matches this season, which placed it 7th in Serie A on 20 Points, 18 behind leaders Napoli, after a run of only two league victories in their past nine games.
The 39 year old Gattuso, who had played for 12 years in the club is elevated from managing the club’s Under-19 side has more prospects for the team.
A club statement on their official Twitter account reads “AC Millan announce to have parted ways with V. Montella. Management of the first team is entrusted to Gennaro Gattuso, who leaves his position as Prmavera Coach and to whom we wish the best of luck.”
