Gennaro Gattuso has resigned from his position as head coach of Serie A giants AC Milan.
The two-time Champions League and Serie A winner with Milan as a player replaced Vincenzo Montella in 2017.
The 41-year-old left the San Siro after missing out on Champions League qualification.
Gattuso announced his departure and stated he still has an excellent relationship with the club.
“My decision to leave AC Milan’s bench has not been easy, but I had to make it,”
“It’s been a hard choice but one I put thought into. I have given up two years left on my contract because my history with this club will never be about money.” He told La Repubblica.
Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi and Sampdoria’s Marco Giampaolo have been tipped to take over the Milan based club.
AC Milan placed fifth on the Serie A table and automatically qualify for the UEFA Europa League next season with 68 points from 38 games.
