& # 39; Deciding to leave the bank in Milan is not easy, but it's a decision I had to make & he said, according to the Italian newspaper Repubblica.
& # 39; There was no precise moment at which I decided, it was the sum of these 18 months as a team coach that for me will never be like the others. Months where I lived with a lot of passion and unforgettable months.
& # 39; Mine is a painful but thoughtful choice.
& # 39; Do I provide a two-year contract? Yes, because my story with Milan can never be a matter of money. & # 39;
Gattuso took the role in November 2017 after a period as a coach for the youth team.
