AC Milan sack Montella and put Gattuso in charge

Sulley Muntari celebrating a goal with AC Milan

Milan drew 0-0 with Torino on Sunday, leaving the club seventh in the league table, a mammoth 18 points behind leaders Napoli.

AC Milan have sacked manager Vincenzo Montella and replaced him with former midfielder Gennaro Gattuso.

Soon after Montella's departure was announced by the club, Bacca posted a message on his Twitter handle, saying: "God took his time but never forgot".

Gattuso went on to have short spells at Palermo and Greek outfit OFA Crete, while he also guided Pisa to Serie B - and then went on to see them finish bottom - before going on to take the U19 job at Milan.




Gattuso made more than 450 appearances for AC Milan between 1999 and 2012, helping Milan win two Serie A titles and making 72 worldwide appearances for Italy, being part of their 2006 World Cup winning team.

AC Milan, who have won the Italian title 18 times and are seven-time European champions, have not finished in the top three in Serie A since 2013.

It is no secret that AC Milan wanted Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this past summer but the Bundesliga outfit fought off every advance and a player of his calibre that is mature today is what is missing at the heart of the Rossoneri attack.

The new-found optimism was apparent at Milan's first home match of the season when a 65,000-crowd turned up at San Siro on a stifling August evening for a Europa League tie against modest Romanian side Universitatea Craiova.
