Who would have thought that after just two months of work Gennaro Gattuso would have conquered everyone at Casa Milan with such speed. The club satisfied with his work and progress of the team are preparing to reward Rino with a new contract.
The Rossoneri coach, who arrived as a possible ferryman of a team in crisis after the sacking of Vincenzo Montella, is exceeding the initial expectations. An uncomfortable debut, with a draw against Benevento and the heavy k.o. of Verona, but afterwards a series of positive results (8 consecutive) that have brought AC Milan in the race for a place in European competitions next season.
Gennaro Gattuso deserves recognition and not just verbal. AC Milan, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, are seriously considering extending his contract until June 2020, choosing Rino as coach of the present and the future.
An idea only theoretical for the moment but quite possible. The sports director Mirabelli is very satisfied with the improvements within the squad on various aspects, such as tactical and the ability to finally concede less goals than before. Gattuso has created a totally new identity of the club after so many disappointments and the renewal of the contract could be the right prize to reward his efforts.
Of course, there would also be an increase in salary, given that Rino earns “only” 120 thousand euros per year, or the figure agreed as a coach of the Primavera team. Gattuso, in order to train the first team, did not demand any extra bonus, demonstrating once more the attachment and the fighting spirit he has always had as a player.
