Gennaro Gattuso announced his exit as AC Milan manager following the club’s inability to make Champions League qualification on Sunday.
Gennaro Gattuso,41 in an interview with La Repubblica on Tuesday,said though a painful decision to him it was thoughtful;
”Deciding to leave Milan’s bench is not easy. But it’s a decision I had to make,” Gattuso told La Repubblica.
”There was not a precise moment in which I made it, it was the sum of these 18 months as coach of a team that for me will never be like the others.
”Months that I lived with great passion, unforgettable months.
”Mine is a painful but thoughtful choice. Am I giving up a two-year contract? Yes, because my story with Milan can never be a question of money.
