AC Milan have confirmed on Monday morning that they have officially parted company with manager Vincenzo Montella.
“Milan announce the dismissal of Vincenzo Montella as Coach of the first team,” read a message on the Rossoneri’s official Twitter account.
“The technical operation is entrusted to Gennaro Gattuso, who leaves his post as Primavera Coach and to whom we send the warmest wishes.”
Montella leaves the Rossoneri sitting in seventh place in Serie A, with just six wins from their opening 14 league games.
The results are deemed by the management to be not good enough after a summer spending spree of over €200million, with the club 11 points back of the final Champions League place.
Milan Primavera coach Gennaro Gattuso will take charge.
