After Massimiliano Allegri, who ended the season with 72 points & 3rd place, the 'Great Depression' began for Milan.
Although not a great Milan, Gattuso's results have been the best in recent years.
Seedorf - 57 points / 8th place
Inzaghi - 52 points / 10th place
Mihajlovic/Brocchi - 57 points / 7th place
Montella - 63 points / 6th place
Montella/Gattuso - 64 points / 6th place
Gattuso currently - 62 points with a possible 68, if we manage next 2 wins, as well as a possible 4th place.
In fact, when it comes to combined appearances as player and coach for Milan, Gattuso is behind only Carlo Ancelotti and Niels Liedholm
Ancelotti - 420 as player, 160 as coach
Liedholm - 280 as player, 394 as coach
Gattuso - 468 as player, 81/83 as coach
Gennaro Gattuso has seemingly been on the hot seat all season but, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, he may have a future at the club after all.
The report says that the 41-year-old can retain his place on the Milan sideline should Milan clinch a Champions League place by finishing in the top four.
Milan are currently on 62 points, level with Roma but three points behind fourth-placed Atalanta, with two games to play.
In the event that both Atalanta and Milan finish level, the Rossoneri own the head-to-head tiebreaker, having defeated Atalanta 3-1 in February after drawing 2-2 back in September.
Milan also own the head-to-head tiebreaker with Roma, having won 2-1 in August before drawing 1-1 in February.
In the event of a three-way tie for fourth, Milan would go through having the best head-to-head goal difference.
Milan will finish the season against Frosinone and SPAL, Atalanta face Juventus and Sassuolo, while Roma take on Sassuolo and Parma.
The questions must be asked.....
It takes time to build a great squad, has Gattuso had enough time?
Should there be faith in him?
Does he deserve another season?
Only time will tell.
As always Forza Milan 🔴⚫🔴⚫🔴⚫
