player-coach was on ’s wish-list to become coach earlier this season, his agent has revealed.

During the difficult period for the Rossoneri earlier in the campaign, Berlusconi had identified the former player as an option for succeeding on the bench if he had decided to dispense with the Scudetto-winning tactician.

Talking to¬†Sky, agent Andrea D’Amico said: “It is true that they had tried and Berlusconi wanted Gattuso on the Milan bench.

“Rino is a coach of great temperament and is a perfectionist in everything that he does. At Sion he has also never been sent off, either as a coach or as a player.”
