Louis Van Gaal: Gives Leicester credit

AC Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso says he would walk to Manchester tomorrow if he was offered the chance to succeed Louis van Gaal.

The 38-year-old Italian, who won two Champions League titles and a World Cup during an illustrious career, is now boss of third-tier Pisa.

Yet, unsurprisingly he admits he would jump at the chance to takeover at Old Trafford

When asked what he would do were he offered the role, he told The Sun: “I’d walk there. I’d even go tomorrow.”

The former Rangers midfielder is a big fan of English football.


“Ferguson has always respected me – and I have always admired the Premier League which, for me, is the best league in the world.

“In Italy, we are tactical masters, but in England you see pacey players – with great strength in their legs.

“I love watching the Championship, because in those games, I see true love that people in England have for football. They breathe football.

“I record two Championship matches a night.

“In Italy, some teams can relax during games. In England, with every action of a team, there is a corresponding action from the opposition.”

Gattuso has had stints in charge of Swiss side Sion – as player manager – as well as Italian outfit Palermo and Greek side, Crete.
