AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso has announced he is to leave his position this coming after failing to guide the team into the Champions League.
Milan beat SPAL 3-2 on the final day of 2018-19 but it was not enough as Milan fell just a point short of a top-four spot.
In an interview with Italian publication La Repubblica, Gattuso confirmed he is departing on good terms with Milan, despite the disappointing end to their campaign.
“My decision to leave AC Milan’s bench has not been easy, but I had to make it,” Gattuso said, with the club expected to confirm the news later on Tuesday.
“It’s been a hard choice but one I put thought into. I have given up two years left on my contract because my history with this club will never be about money.”
Gattuso replaced Vincenzo Montella in November 2017 with his promotion from Milan’s Primavera side sparking a resurgence.
Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi and Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo are two of the favourites to take over.
