“I chose him because of his great temperament and basically the fact his name is Gattuso.
The former midfielder was appointed as Vincenzo Montella’s replacement this week, and Gazzetta dello Sport spoke to the man who fired him after just eight games with the Rosanero.
“He was early on in his experience as a Coach,” Zamparini explained of Gattuso’s time in Sicily.
“He didn’t have high-level experience, but I hoped that all his grit would help him overcome what he lacked even in this case.
“A friend suggested him to us, we were following [Kyle] Lafferty and then he came along with Rino. In reality we took him due to circumstance.
“We were in Serie B, we need a young Coach to start a new cycle. He had just finished his career as a player and then he was Sion Coach.
&ldqu六合投注网站o;Now he’s been called to a task which isn’t easy, and all of you [Milan fans] have to support him. Serie A is another level and, I repeat, Gattuso was a great player but he doesn’t have much experience.
“Of course he went though Arezzo, Bari, Atalanta and Siena before he arrived at Juve.
“I hope what he’s done so far will be enough for him. [Antonio] Conte had a heavy second name and then he became Conte the great Coach who we know now.
“I hope Rino can do the same and repeat Conte’s career. I’m not 线上足球投注saying that in a trivial manner, quite the opposite.”
“If he really is more than what he was on the pitch then he’ll prove it, and I sincerely hope he does it with Milan.
“His surname says a lot, it’s synonymous with a great temperament, and I don’t mean that in a disparaging way.
Maurizio Zamparini wishes Gennaro Gattuso good luck at Milan, despite sacking him at Palermo – “I love him and I wish him the best”.
“I love hi澳门外围投注m and I wish him the best, what more can I say?
