Former Italian international, Gennaro Gattuso has parted ways with AC Milan by “mutual agreement” after the Serie A club missed out on Champions League qualification for next season.
AC Milan chief executive Ivan Gazidis said “AC Milan wishes to thank Gennaro Gattuso for his leadership during the last 18 months.”
The club finished fifth in the table, missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League by one point.
“I have had the privilege to get to know Rino Gattuso over the past six months since my arrival at the club,” Gazidis continued.
“Rino has given everything to our efforts this season, and has worked tirelessly, always taking full responsibility, putting the club above every other consideration.
“I want to say from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Rino.”
AC Milan, seven-time champions of Europe, have not played in the Champions League since 2013-14.
The former midfielder, who played 468 matches for the club, had two years left on his coaching contract.
