Manager Gennaro Gattuso has agreed a new three-year contract with AC Milan.
Earlier this season, Gattuso penned a deal until the end of the season but the former midfielder has led a revival at San Siro with 13 wins and six draws from his 25 matches in charge,
Milan have now moved to keep Gattuso as boss of the Serie A giants over a longer period, and CEO Marco Fassone has admitted his happiness at tying down the services of the 42-year-old, who spent 13 seasons at the club during his playing days.
At a press conference, Fassone said: “The moment has arrived to tell you that Rino Gattuso will be our coach for the next three years. This is one of the most heartfelt choices we’ve made since we’ve been here, and in recent months he’s done an extraordinary job.
“With Rino we can really have an important long-term project. It’s my fault the renewal took so long because I was always away, but Rino is absolutely wanted by all of us.”
Milan currently sit in sixth place in the league standings.
