5 coaches sacked by AC Milan under four-year period

Gennaro Gattuso is enjoying his run with AC Milan and he has confessed that he would be happy to keep the head coaching role beyond the end of the season he was originally meant to stay.

Gattuso disclosed that he would indeed like to remain head coach on a permanent basis after guiding AC Milan through to the Europa League round of 16.

Gattuso was promoted from his role with the Primavera youth team to take charge of the senior side until the end of the season after Vincenzo Montella was sacked in November.

Asked about his future after sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli said he wanted Gattuso to remain at the club next season, the tenacious 40-year-old told Sky Sport Italia: "You have to ask the club that.

"I always give the same answers, because it's what I believe.

"It is a great honour for me to be the Milan coach. It's a lot of pressure and responsibility too, but I like that.

"I am eternally grateful to Mirabelli and Fassone for giving me this opportunity and I hope it continues."

AC Milan are presently on an 11-match unbeaten run.
