AC Milan’s young forward Patrick Cutrone is excited about the appointment of Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso, but he will always be grateful towards Montella, who was recently sacked.
Gattuso was coaching the Milan U-19 side before managing the senior team after Vincenzo Montella’s sacking. Patrick Cutrone, who is a product of Milan’s youth academies, is very excited to work with a legend like Gattuso, this is what he had to say:
“Gattuso is a legend, it is a big honor to have him as a coach,” the teenage striker told a select group of reporters, including those from Goal, at an event organized by PES 2018 – the official video game partner of Milan.
“Since I was a child I have appreciated him for his grit and the way he helped his team-mates.”
Even with the excitement of Gattuso’s appointment, he will be forever grateful towards Montella, who promoted Cutrone and made him play his first game with the senior team in May 2017.
“I honestly did not expect to play so much,” admitted Cutrone.
“I will always be grateful to Montella, the experience in these games has helped me a lot.”
Gattuso’s first game in charge will be on Sunday against a bottom of the table side Benevento.
