32-year-old Brazil International has told he was forced to come out from AC Milan and he was very upset with Coach Massimiliano Allegri.
FIFA World Player of the year 2004 and 2005 is signed for Atletico Mineiro from Flamengo this year. He left Milan in 2010, but he was forced to leave the Milan.
In the years of 2011, he moved to Brazilian club Flamengo and stayed there for 2011 to 2012; he notched 15 goals in 33 appearances.
He opened his mouth now to talk about Allegri’s conduct with him and his relationship with ex-coach.
He told: “I am a player that always wants to play, but many times Allegri left me out,”
“This left me very upset. I was in good shape when I was at Milan, but he didn’t play me to give me the opportunity to express myself, so that is why I left.” Brazilian added.
Gattuso has played 335 matches for AC Milan, and he is one of the best players in Milan’s history. This 34-years-old defender was the key-player for Italy in 2006 World Cup.
Gattuso said: “The locker room was out of control in the last two or three months with things I’d never seen in 13 years with the Rossoneri,”
“When we had training at 9.30am, many arrived just 10 minutes beforehand and nobody would say anything. I’d arrive 45 minutes early in order to do some exercises, get a massage or even just to relax with a cup of coffee. That’s the sporting culture you get after years of experience.
“Or, when we had lunch at 13.00, some turned up 15 minutes late. There was no respect for the rules.”
He moved to Sion this year; he played for Milan from 1999 to 2012, but he left Milan with some bad memory with coach.
