We all love a classic midfield hardman.
That’s why Rangers and AC Milan fans still talk about Gennaro Gattuso in hushed, reverential tones. Partly because the former Italy star is adored at both clubs… and partly because no-one would want to mistakenly make Gattuso angry.
During his playing career, the man known as ‘Rene’ proved time and again that he was not someone you want to cross. In short, he had a temper that made Roy Keane look like Juan Mata.
So it should come as no surprise to learn that, as a manager, Gattuso hasn’t changed a bit. If anything, he’s got even MORE furious.
Take a look at the clip above to see what we mean. It comes from the recent derby between Spal and Pisa, where Gattuso is currently in charge.
Perturbed by something (God knows what), Gattuso gets angry with his assistant manager and demands he brings him an item.
Clearly this was not done quickly enough – because Gattuso immediately SMACKS HIS ASSISTANT IN THE FACE.
Yikes. Still, we are talking about a man who wasn’t afraid to take on the mighty Joe Jordan. He’s lucky to be alive…
